Heuchera × villosa ‘Carnival Watermelon’


Coral Bells

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.266.880


Coral Bells are a terrific choice for adding a touch of colour towards the front of a border in shady areas and are one of the most versatile of garden plants. This villosa hybrid, part of the Carnival series, known for their tidy mounding habit and excellent heat and humidity tolerance, has bronze-green leaves with rich, silver markings and pink undersides. Short sprays of small white bell flowers in summer. Wonderful in the garden or in mixed containers. Trim off any withered or tired-looking leaves in spring. Should tolerate more sun in cool-summer regions like the Pacific Northwest. USPP#24803: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
