coral bells

Coral Bells Heuchera come in many different colors and can brighten up shady spots in your garden. These herbaceous perennials attract nectar-loving critters such as hummingbirds and butterflies to their bell-shaped flowers from late spring to early fall. These flowers are often a pinkish or reddish color and where the nickname “Coral Bells” is derived. The flower clusters are held above the colorful foliage on wiry stems.

The foliage of Coral Bells can differ greatly in color, size and leaf shape. They range from deep purple to bronze, chartreuse, green and more with leaves that can be smooth, wavy or ruffled. The darker the leaf, the more sun a plant can tolerate and the lighter yellow the leaf, the less sun it can tolerate.

There are 50-70 species of Heuchera that are native to North America. They were named after Johan Heinrich von Heucher, an 18th century German professor of medicine and a botanist. He specialized in medicinal plants and authored several books.

Heuchera Coral Bells do best in organically rich soils with medium moisture and good drainage. In the North they can be planted in full sun. In the South they should be planted in part shade to full shade.

We offer Coral Bells Heuchera in our Quart Premium Perennials.
