Heuchera, Heucherella, Tiarella
Heucheras, commonly called Coral Bells or Alumroot, are easy to grow, blend easily with most other plants, come in most colors and offer a variety of leaf and bloom shapes. Heuchera have a low mounding habit so they are often used as edging along paths or in containers. Coral Bell foliage is long lasting, salt tolerant evergreen. They grow most vigorously and have best color contrast when grown in partial shade (afternoon shade is best); in full shade their growth rate will be slow. In northern climates some varieties can take full sun if they have consistent moisture but their colors tend to fade with the intensity of the sun.
Foamflower or Tiarella is a native North American shade perennial known for its delicate, airy flowers. Many of these plants display a seasonal foliage color change, and some have a slowly creeping growth habit. Learn more at our Tiarella Information Page!
