This new variety of Heuchera is named for the bright red color of its new foliage in spring. The mature foliage is deep maroon with heavily ruffled edges. Dark red stems carry a profusion of white flowers in late spring and early summer.

Coral Bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most otehr perennials in the landscape.  Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Heucheras are easy perennials to grow and fit nicely in the front of any border, rock garden, or container. They grow most vigorously and have the strongest colors when grown in partial shade (preferably afternoon shade). They can also be grown in full shade but their growth rate will be very slow. Some varieties can withstand full sun if they have consistent moisture, but their colors tend to fade with the intensity of the sun. If properly sited out of the way of winter winds and with reliable snow cover, gardeners in northern regions may also find their heucheras acting as evergreens. If the plant looks tattered by early spring, shear off any damaged leaves to make room for the vibrant new foliage which will fill in quickly. Heucheras can be grown under Black Walnut trees because they are resistant to the toxin Juglone which the trees emit from their roots. Heucheras are also salt tolerant. They are useful in the north along pathways which are salted in winter or for people gardening in coastal regions.
