Heuchera VI / Coral Bells

heupeachcrisp (300x298)Heuchera ‘Peach Crisp’ – This popular Heuchera has a foliage texture to match its beautiful colouring, eventually forming a dense mound of ruffled, undulating leaves with new growth emerging peach and eventually shifting to amber. It is a Terra Nova introduction and part of the Crisp Series. Works well in containers. Grows 12-14″ high by 16″ wide. Zone 4.

heusugarfrosting (300x290)Heuchera ‘Sugar Frosting’ – A dense-growing Heuchera with matt burgundy foliage overlaid in pewter, so that the darker veins show through. This Proven Winners selection also bears airy cream-coloured flowers from April to July. Tolerates part shade to full sun exposures and works well in containers with Sedum ‘Angelina’. Grows 8-10″ high by 12″ wide. Hardy to zone 4.

heucherageorgiaplum (300x290)Heuchera ‘Georgia Plum’ – This introduction by Terra Nova is a new form of ‘Georgia Peach’ and was bred from H. americana, Heuchera micrantha and H. villosa.

Hardy to zone 4.
