Heuchera in the wild are little understory plants that live beside small streams where the air is moist and cool. A long way from these small, green plants are the wild colours of today’s Heuchera, or coralbells. From chartreuse to almost black these leaves add dramatic colour to the landscape. 'Palace Purple' started the big interest in Heuchera by becoming the 1991 Perennial Plant of the Year. The deep purple leaves have an interesting beet-red colour underneath. Foliage color may fade to a bronze-green in hot summers. Flowers are airy panicles with tiny, pinkish white, bell-shaped flowers. As all coralbells, this Heuchera is happiest with some relief from the blazing August sun and ample moisture. Generally pest and disease free.
