From woodlands and rock gardens to containers, borders, and groundcovers, Heuchera (Coral Bells) is at home! It grows as a low, non-spreading mound of foliage topped by airy clusters of small bell-shaped flowers. The stunning foliage of these fast-growing, deer- and pest-resistant perennials is so multi-colored it will stand out anywhere! With large, heart-shaped to rounded leaves, the striking colors and variegation patterns beautifully accent the clusters of late-spring, hummingbird-attracting flower spikes. It performs well in full sun in the northern part of its range, but prefers part shade (particularly with afternoon shade) in the hot summers of the Deep South. If grown in full sun, consistent moisture is needed and soil should not be allowed to dry out.

It is best grown in organic-rich well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. In cold winter climates, a winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving (clumps are shallow-rooted and will develop woody bases rather quickly). Divide clumps in spring every 3-4 years.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root. Tags are included with bare root perennials from DeGroot.
