Heuchera (Coral Bells)
at Digging Dog

Including Heuchera ‘Obsidian’, Heuchera pulchella ‘Raspberry Regal’, and Heuchera x brizoides ‘Weston Pink’


Coral Bells

Maple-like leaves form a dense evergreen base for long slender stems lined with small, urn shaped flowers, ranging in color from white to pink to chartreuse. Heucheras are extremely durable, despite their delicate, even dainty appearance. Long-lived and occasionally drought tolerant, they are appropriate to virtually any garden situation.

Heuchera x brizoides ‘Weston Pink’  full sun  partial shade

Overtop a trim mound of polished leaves, tall spires flaunt exceptional dusty pink flowers that easily meld with other perennials—a plus for this choice long-lived cultivar and for the garden designer. Surround ‘Weston Pink’ with diverse colors: lavender and blue Geraniums, yellow Kniphofias and Achilleas. Plant a large swath for visual impact and for arrangements as well.

Blooms April–July.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Heuchera ‘Coral Bouquet’  full sun  partial shade

Blooms April–June.

Size: 20" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Heuchera ‘Obsidian’  full sun  partial shade  new plant
Coral Bells

Like shiny slabs of jet-black obsidian, smooth ultradark leaves achieve a gem-like luster, while shrouding an elegant compact mound. Dapper foliage, touted as the blackest of all—rounded, lobed and long-petioled—holds its seductive ebony and midnight-maroon coloring through full sun and hot, humid weather. Heightened by tall, supple red-tinted stems with small creamy flowers, reliable ‘Obsidian’ becomes a deep mysterious springboard, accentuating gilt-leafed grasses and perennials, the silvery fronds of Japanese Painted ferns plus spotted Pulmonarias. (pp#14,836)

Blooms June–July

Size: 2' 0" high x 16" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Heuchera pulchella ‘Raspberry Regal’  full sun  partial shade
Heuchera pulchella Raspberry Regal

Excellent for cutting, these tightly clustered, deep rosy pink flowers open from dark, raspberry-red buds held on strong, upright stems that rise 2-½ ft. above the leafy mound of basal foliage. The robust leaves are deep green and sometimes subtly mottled with silver. To ensure cool, moist soil and ample sun, we plant this Heuchera on the edge of our woodland border and back it with Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘alba’.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Heuchera sanguinea ‘Apple Blossom’  full sun  partial shade

Lush verdant foliage offers a dramatic counterpoint to this Heuchera’s uniquely bicolored flower, which is snowy white with a pink-blushed lip. Elevated on 8 to 12 in. tall stems, the blossoms look especially cheerful next to blue blooming Nepetas.

Blooms April–June.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Heuchera ‘Santa Ana Cardinal’  full sun  partial shade

A superb evergreen cross between Heuchera maxima and Heuchera sanguinea, this vigorous dazzler was introduced in 1958 by the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden. Scalloped bright green leaves describe a dense lustrous base, showcasing the generous offering of vivid rosy red bells on 2 ft. tall flowering spires.

Tantalizing to hummingbirds and other plant enthusiasts, long blooming ‘Santa Ana Cardinal’ relishes cool sunny spots or bright shady ones with average to minimal summer waterings once mature.

Blooms April – July.

Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide. Zone 7/8.
