Heuchera Peach Flambe (Coral Bells)

Ahhh... red foliage!!! I have a weakness for leaves that aren't green. I have to be careful that I don't buy too many red leaf plants, because my garden could easily be taken over by the colour. (Have I mentioned how much I love Japanese Maples?)

I have a Heuchera 'Peach Flambe' (a.k.a. Coral Bells), which is thriving in my front garden. Of course now I wish I'd bought more than one ;) Not to worry... I intend to propagate it somehow. Maybe I'll try a cutting.

Here's some Coral Bells info:

  • Herbaceous Perennial
  • Saxifragaceae family
  • Zones 4-9
  • Likes full sun or partial shade
  • Not a native of BC (but thank you to whoever brought it here :)
  • Grows tiny white blossoms on tall thin stems
  • Can be propagated by division, every 3-4 years
  • Preferred soil PH 6.0-7.0
  • Size: 14" spread, 7" leaf height, 16" flower stem height
  • Spent flower stems should be removed
  • Prefers moist but well drained soil
