Description

(12-24" tall x 8-12" wide) The beautiful mounding foliage of award-winning 'Midnight Rose' Coral Bells not only stands up to heat and humidity, it also adds terrific contrast to your planting schemes. The dark, nearly black, lobed leaves are dappled with hot pink which gradually fades into cream as the season wears on. Flowers are tiny, salmon-colored and held above the foliage by wire-like stems. Heuchera are excellent container plants, and their relative hardiness means that many gardeners can leave them in those containers all year long, changing out annual companions for variety and adding new compost as a top dressing. Use them to accentuate the edges of shadier garden beds with favorites like Hosta and Carex. 'Midnight Rose' Coral Bells can tolerate sunny spots, but in hot summer areas prefers protection from afternoon sun, which can burn the leaves. Aim for a site with plenty of morning sun and a well-drained soil which never gets boggy. Heuchera is seldom damaged by deer.
