Heuchera, ‘Coral Bells’ will wake up your yard. Your neighbors will be envious!
I’ve written about Coral Bells before but I’ve got some new pictures that I just have to share with you. These are some of the coolest (I know, saying “cool” shows my age) plants that I’ve ever added to a landscape. And there are so many different kinds.
Don’t get all caught up in “Hey Mike! What variety is that one?” Because . . . I probably don’t know, I’m still learning these and since most of them are patented I’m not propagating them at all. Which means that I am certain to forget which ones I planted in my landscape. “the old kanoggin ain’t what it used to be! I forget.”
I just like them a lot! Knowing which variety is which won’t help you because they are kind of hard to find and when you do find them you’ll be at the mercy of what your local garden store has in stock. Just buy some of each!
It sure doesn’t look like it yet, but I planted five different varieties of Coral Bells in this bed in my yard and I used nine of each variety. In a few months after these plants fill out I’ll get another photo and post it here for you. It should be awesome!
Approximately twelve months later and this bed looks great, the Coral Bells filled in nicely.
Having grown a lot of different Coral Bells and used them in my landscape in several different places, the one that impresses me the most is Snow Angel. Beautiful Variegated leaves with bright pink flowers. Tough as nails, easy to grow and propagate via division.
People like me are always looking for small plants that they can buy and
we buy hundreds at a time from people just like you.
