Heuchera x villosa 'Bella Notte'

Coral Bells

Plant Type: Perennial

Dark red stems carry wands of deep rose pink buds that open to lighter pink flowers above the mound of lightly silvered, dark purple foliage. Foliage grows 9" tall, flower scapes rise to 13". Perhaps best of all, this one blooms all season long, from late spring through early fall. This plant is a Heuchera villosa hybrid. The villosa species is a large, late blooming type that exhibits an increased tolerance of high heat and humidity over other species. Most produce cream flowers in midsummer, though they are grown more for their fantastic foliage. H. villosa is native to the southeastern United States. Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape. Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers. Try cutting a few of the tall flower scapes for fresh bouquets.
