Heuchera (Coral Bells)
Heuchera plants form round mounds with small bell-shaped flowers appearing in spring or early summer on tall stems. Rich in nectar, the flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies, plus they make nice cut flowers. Heuchera are native North American plants that are at home in woodlands, rock gardens, containers, and borders. They can also be used as ground covers. Heuchera is a short-lived perennial, so divide plants every three to five years to keep them healthy. Divide the plants in early spring or early fall, which will give them time to acclimate and establish before the weather becomes harsh. If the leaves get a bit ragged looking, especially after winter, cut them back and new growth should fill in quickly.
