Heucheras or Coral Bells as they are commonly called, are extremely attractive and hardy plants.  They are an evergreen that can be planted singularly or in groups.  


Heuchera ‘Melting Fire’ is a new variety with heavily curled burgundy leaves.  At the same time tall but delicate heads of small white flowers rise up above the foliage to about 55cm.   The colorful foliage and sprays of soft flowers make it a great garden addition.


Heuchera ‘Malachite’ will thrive in any reasonable garden soil with full sun to part shade.  However best results are obtained in filtered light with a good covering of mulch and a biannual feeding.  It also responds well to regular summer watering and feeding with Osmocote Slow Release.


Heucheras make excellent border plants.  They also perform well in tubs or underneath any medium sized flowering shrubs.  There are many different forms of this delightful plant, collect them all and make your garden a colorful place to be.  Melting Fire makes a great contrast to the ruffled true green foliage of Malachite.
