description for "Coral Bells: Heuchera sanguinea 'Splish Splash'"

The brilliant foliage on 'Splish Splash' is spectacular at anytime of the year - even in winter in milder climates. Each scalloped leaf is deep green on the very edge. The center is a large splash of milky white, highlighted by pink veins that radiate from the leaf center. Spectacular as a specimen alongside a walk. Hardy in zones 6-9. Although coral bells bloom in late spring, the flowers are usually not nearly as showy as the foliage. Provide partial shade with rich, consistently moist soil that has adequate drainage. Coral bells hate wet feet! Does best in cooler climates. – edited by dtd pbcouchman

History:

Heuchera sanguinea is native to Arizona, New Mexico and Mexico.
