description for "Coral Bells: Heuchera americana 'Marvelous Marble™'"

Marvelous Marble™ coral bells produces blooms of green foliage with dark veins. Mounded. The delicate blooms are long-lived when cut and are produced in profusion. The newer varieties have made significant improvements in foliage. Every summer bouquet should benefit from coral bells. Be sure to deadhead regularly to prolong the bloom season. Corals bells will grow in most any well-drained alkaline soil. Divide 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
