    • All 8 of my huecheras (planted 4 of these and 4 Wildberry) look dead within a week of planting. Will see if they happen to come back. Very expensive mistake.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • Heuchera (coral bells) are easy to grow and so attractive. The plant becomes prettier and larger each year! I live in Zone 5-b, with huge variations of temperatures and weather extremes (95-100* summers and -10* winters). Yet, these brighten up the landscape year round, with their green foliage peeking out of ice, sleet and snow during the dreariest of winter months. I do have mine mulched lightly to avoid upheaval during the bitterly cold winters, as well as to keep any weeds at bay. In summer, they sent up unusual tall, dainty flowers which are impervious to rain and winds. Gorgeous! Thrilling plant. All heuchera/coral bells are evergreen, which is a huge plus in the landscape. Simply clip off old foliage and new will grow in its place. I have these beautiful plants in containers and planted in flowerbeds with hostas and mini hostas, bleeding hearts, iris, hydrangeas and many other semi-shade loving plants/shrubs. I even have these planted UNDER my peonies in full sun! It was a test and they are thriving. The light green foliage is spectacular against the peony's dark foliage, as well as providing winter interest when the peonies die back for their rest. Recommend this particular heuchera for its stunning year-round foliage to provide that needed burst of color. It is a lovely mound of joy in a container or placed within your landscape. Once you try them, you'll order more! They are addictive. Enjoy.
