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).

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.
