Heuchera 'Melting Fire'

Availability: Out of stock

Bright red spring foliage gives this white-flowered heuchera its name. Mature, deep maroon leaves display heavy ruffling at the edges. White flowers on 18" scapes.


Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape. Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers. NOTE: be careful not to bury the crowns when planting.
