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.
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.
