description for "Coral Bells: Heuchera 'Heuros'"

'Heuros' (a.k.a. 'Rosemary Bloom') has no rival for its summer-long floral displays and is a good plant for the edge of the border, . Beginning in early summer, bright, dainty coral-pink bells with soft yellow throats bloom above rich mounds of foliage. They'll entice butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden as well. Deadheading is advised to encourage rebloom. 'Heuros' should be planted with the crown slightly raised above the soil; mulch well but be sure to avoid covering the crowns. Divide in spring or fall every three years. Some good plants to associate with coral bells include brunnera, shasta daisy, scabiosa, daylily (especially dwarf) and most any plant with a vertical emphasis, such as iris. 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
