Coral Bells

Heuchera spp.

Coral Bells are versatile perennials known for their stunning foliage and delicate flower spikes. These plants come in a variety of colors, including shades of green, burgundy, silver, and purple, making them a fantastic choice for adding texture and color to your garden. The bell-shaped flowers, which bloom in late spring to early summer, attract hummingbirds and other pollinators.

Coral Bells thrive in partial shade, though some varieties can tolerate full sun. They prefer well-drained soil and benefit from regular watering, especially during dry periods. These plants are also relatively low-maintenance, requiring only occasional deadheading and division every few years to maintain their vigor and prevent overcrowding.

In addition to their ornamental appeal, Coral Bells are excellent for ground cover, borders, and container gardening. Their foliage provides year-round interest, and they can be combined with other shade-loving plants to create stunning garden displays.
