This amazing perennial comes in a wide variety of colors including chartreuse, red, bronze, orange, purple, green, silver, and bi-color (so there's a perfect heuchera for every garden!). Plus, in late spring and early summer, heuchera sends up delightful spikes of small red, white, or pink bell-like flowers that give the plant it's common name of coral bells. The flowers are hummingbird favorites, too! Heuchera forms a compact, 12 to 20 inch tall mound of color that works well along a border's edge or pathway. Or, use heuchera in a container by itself or mixed with other foliage plants such as hosta and ajuga. Heuchera is also deer resistant. Hardy from zones 4-9.
