Heuchera micrantha, also known as purple-leaved coral bells, forms clumps of attractive foliage that ranges from greenish-bronze to deep reddish-purple. Creamy blooms adorn the plant in early summer. Heuchera micrantha isn't difficult to propagate by division.
Heuchera micrantha can be propagated by dividing mature plants in spring. Dig the entire clump, including the soil, about 6 to 8 inches around the plant. Use your hands or a sharp knife to divide the clump into smaller sections, each with a healthy root system.
Heuchera micrantha divisions should be planted immediately in partial or full sunlight and well-drained soil that has been amended with compost or manure. Dig a hole for each division, then plant the divisions at the same soil level they were planted previously. Pat the soil firmly around the divisions.
Heuchera micrantha is prone to rot in soggy soil, so the plant should be watered deeply, then allowed to dry before watering again. A 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch will protect the plant from damage caused by repeated freezing and thawing.
