Heuchera (pronounced Hue kah rah with emphasis on Hue) is a species native to the U.S. and commonly referred to as Coral Bells. You’ve probably seen it in your parents or grandparents gardens. They are semi-evergreen to evergreen perennial plants (depending on your location) and provide such a great impact of color and texture in the landscape making them great investment plants.
Planting Coral Bells in Your Garden: There are lots of great Coral Bells hybrids which will grow in many different situations from full sun to full shade. Each variety will have its own requirements, so be sure to read them carefully. Most Heucheras are cold hardy to zone 4 and heat hardy to zone 9 and considered to be deer resistant. Over June and July, they shoot out spikes with tiny bell shaped flowers whose colors will vary according to the variety.
Heucheras grow best in soil that has been amended with organic matter (aged compost mix and/or aged manure mix) in an area that is moist, but not wet. Once planted, they are virtually maintenance free, although you may want to dig them up, divide the crowns and replant them about every 3 to 4 years. This plant species is found to grow under walnut trees.
For areas in your garden or landscape where you want to keep plants low (under 3 feet), this is the perfect plant. Select several different hybrids for variations in size and color. Wonderful companion plants for the Coral Bells are other Heuchera plants, ferns, hostas and ornamental grasses.
