Heuchera – Champagne Coral Bell
Won ‘Best & Brightest’ at Walt Disney World Bedding Plant Trial Program
If the Magic Kingdom loves it, you will too! An absolutely gorgeous variety, Champagne Coral Bell, Heuchera, features striking foliage that changes color as the season progresses. In spring, leaves emerge a rich peach. The leaves mature to gold, then to champagne-gold with a strong white veil. Wands of light peach flowers appear high over the foliage for most of the season. Plants form full, dense clumps. A tough selection, it looks good and thrives even in the prolonged heat and humidity. Won ‘Best & Brightest’ at Walt Disney World Bedding Plant Trial Program. Fantastic in gardens, mass plantings, as an edger, in mixed containers, or on its own.
A garden designer’s favorite, Coral Bells’ superior mounded form, and striking evergreen leaves make them ideal for containers and edging, or for neat and tidy designs. Spectacular landscapes can be created by using them in serpentine patterns.
Plant Coral Bells in sites with morning sun and afternoon shade, or filtered light. Most prefer a break from the hot afternoon sun. Plant in soil that has been amended with compost or other organic matter. Adding a starter fertilizer at planting will help get the roots off to a fast start. Mulch to keep weeds down and to hold moisture in the soil.
