Short Description

Coral bells, like no others.

Full Description

Stunning foliage is the star. Compact plants glossy, leathery, densely curled leaves are marvels of mingled colors: coppery orange, red, and purple tones on the leaves’ top, bright magenta on the underside. Tiny, creamy white flowers borne in open panicles appear in late spring to early summer on slender burgundy 18” stems—but it’s the mad, magical foliage that commands your attention from 30 feet away. Vigorous, clumping, compact plants form spreading 9-12” mounds, making this a great choice for edging along flower beds or paths, or for starring in containers. Thrives moderately moist, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Remove stems of faded flowers to encourage encore blooms.

Heuchera: Potted Plant Perennial

How Plant

Planting Potted Plants:

  • Select a location with well-drained, rich, moist soil in partial shade or full sun. Morning sun and afternoon shade is preferred.
  • Prepare the bed by turning the soil under to a depth of 6-12 inches removing any debris, and lightly raking as level as possible.
  • The addition of organic matter (leaf mold, compost, well-rotted manure) benefits all gardens and is essential in recently constructed neighborhoods.
  • Plant on a cloudy day or in late afternoon to reduce transplant shock.
  • Dig a hole for each plant large enough to amply accommodate the root ball.
  • Unpot the plant and gently loosen the root ball with your hands to encourage good root growth.
  • Place the top of the root ball even with the level of the surrounding soil. Fill with soil to the top of the root ball. Press soil down firmly with your hand.
  • Use the plant tag as a location marker.
  • Thoroughly water and apply a light mulch layer on top of the soil (1-2 inches) to conserve water and reduce weeds.

How to Grow

  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their germination.
  • Mulches also help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures. For perennials, an organic mulch of aged bark or shredded leaves lends a natural look to the bed and will improve the soil as it breaks down in time.  Always keep mulches off a plant’s stems to prevent possible rot.
  • Careful watering is essential in getting perennials off to a good start. Water thoroughly at least once a week to help new roots grow down deeply. Soil should be damp at about 1 inch below the soil surface. You can check this by sticking your finger in the soil. Water early in the morning to give all leaves enough time to dry.  One inch of rain or watering per week is recommended for most perennial plants. You can check to see if you need to add water by using a rain gauge.
  • Until plants become established, some protection from extreme winds and direct, hot sunlight may be necessary.  Good air movement is also important.
  • After new growth appears, a light fertilizer may be applied. Keep granular fertilizers away from the plant crown and foliage to avoid burn injury. Use low rates of a slow release fertilizer such as Garden-tone, as higher rates may encourage root rots.
  • Feed heucheras in spring with a top dressing of compost, and renew the mulch around the plants as needed.
  • Deadhead for more continuous blooming if you are growing for the flowers.
  • Divide plants in the spring or fall when the centers of the crowns become woody. Discard the woody part and replant the side shoots. Plants often self-sow when they are happy.

Growing Tips

  • Heucheras make a great woodland groundcover or a specimen plant. They are attractive in the front of the border or as an edging.
  • Grown mostly for their show foliage, which brightens shady areas, many varieties have attractive flowers as well that are good for cutting.
