Heuchera ‘Helen Dillon’

Coral Bells

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.267.700

This is a variegated selection of the old-fashioned style of Coral Bells, grown for both the attractive leaves, and the early summer display of flowers. Plants form a low mound of mint-green leaves, overlaid with ivory, bearing taller spikes with loads of bright-red bells. Excellent for cutting. Flowers also are attractive to hummingbirds. Terrific for edging, in the rock garden, or in tubs. Remove spent flower spikes to encourage more buds to form. Plants may be divided every 2 to 3 years in spring or early fall. Best with afternoon shade.
