Coral Bells

Heuchera villosa 'Caramel' PP16,560

Bright shades of yellows and oranges with reddish purple undersides on fuzzy leaves with cream flowers.

This Coral Bells selection has scalloped leaves that emerge gold in spring, deepening to amber and peach. Sprays of light-pink flowers appear in midsummer, after other selections are finished. Very sturdy habit, an excellent choice for hot, humid summer regions. Trim off any tired old leaves in spring. Protect from hot afternoon sun. A 2006 introduction from French breeder Thierry Delabroye discovered by his wife, Sandrine. The Heuchera villosa bloodlines in this hybrid contribute a velvety leaf surface, later flowering habit and exceptional sturdiness. USPP#16560: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
