Not the typical burgundy color of some heucheras, this variety sports leaves that are truly plum purple with even darker purple veins. They are attractively ruffled and have bluntly pointed tips. The newer leaves are somewhat glossy, and all have deep purple undersides.
This heuchera forms a spreading clump and makes a fantastic groundcover when planted en masse. The dainty cream flowers which appear on 26 inch scapes are an added bonus in early summer.
Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape. Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers. Try cutting a few of the tall flower scapes for fresh bouquets.
