Heuchera sanguinea Firefly
18" tall x 15" wide (seed propagated). Heuchera is a western wildflower that has been bred and improved to give us one of our most popular garden perennials. The bright red flowers are held high on long thin wands over the tidy mounds of scalloped foliage. Heavy blooming in well-drained, compost enriched soil, flowering is prolonged by deadheading of faded flowering spikes. Best in part sun and shade in hot climates, but will do well in full sun at higher altitudes with cooler summer weather. Water regularly for the best show of flowers.

Comments about High Country Gardens Heuchera sanguinea Firefly:
These plants add a vivid surprise of color when nestled among smaller shrubs.
I love the addition of movement in my garden when breezes cause the coral bells to sway. You can almost hear them ring!
A fast growing plant that adds the dimension of a little height in my garden.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
