Go Back Coral Bells Georgia Peach

Heuchera 'Georgia Peach'
Rock Garden Icon

Plant Type: Hostas

You'll be blown away by the spectacular glowing peach colored foliage of this new Heuchera! The very large leaves, which can measure up to 8" across, have rounded lobes and are dusted with a light silver overlay. In fall and winter, the foliage turns a warm rose-purple color. Dainty creamy white flowers are produced in early summer. 'Georgia Peach' is more heat and humidity tolerant and forms a large, lush mound in the landscape. It makes an outstanding specimen both in containers or in the garden.

Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape. Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers. Try cutting a few of the tall flower scapes for fresh bouquets.


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 in northern climates if they have consistent moisture, but their colors tend to fade with the intensity of the sun. 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.
