Coral Bells

Heuchera 'Berry Smoothie' PP21,871, COPF

A mound of large rose-pink leaves produces creamy white flowers.

This hybrid Coral Bells selection is a terrific choice for adding a touch of colour towards the front of a border in shady areas. The large, gently-lobed leaves are bright rose-pink in spring darkening to bronze-red by summer. Taller stems of small ivory bell flowers appear in late spring. Wonderful in the garden or in mixed containers. Heat and humidity tolerant. Robust grower. Trim off any withered or tired-looking leaves in spring. Should tolerate more sun in cool-summer regions like the Pacific Northwest. Part of the villosa Collection from Terra Nova Nurseries in Oregon. USPP#21871: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
