Details

18" tall x 15" wide. Firefly Coral Bells (Heuchera sanguinea Firefly) 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. (seed propagated).

Tips On Growing Heuchera (Coral Bells)

Heuchera  (Coral Bells) is a genus of North American native perennials known for their attractive foliage and showy flower sprays.

Preferred growing conditions:

  • Plant in compost enriched soils with good drainage. 
  • Position in partial to full shade. 
  • Mulch with commonly available mulch materials.
  • Coral Bells like moderate soil moisture and should be watered regularly, especially when conditions are dry.
  • Deadheading will prolong blooming.
  • Fertilize lightly in the fall with a half and half blend of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost.

Special comments:

  • Heuchera should not be divided.
  • Leave the plants standing over the winter months, and removed winter-killed foliage in mid-spring. Plants are semi-evergreen with thick succulent stems growing from the crown and should not be cut back, only trimmed.

Comments about High Country Gardens Heuchera sanguinea Firefly:

I purchased three of the firefly in April. They are pretty healthy and enjoying the burried soaker hose, but they have not put out blooms the first year.

    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.

    Q & A

    Suggested Companion Plants:

    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).
