Coral Bells are grown for their beautiful leaves. The leaves may be purplish, metallic silver or purple bronze. The underside of the leaf can also be purplish-pink in some cultivars.

You can get potted Coral Bells at your local landscape store or you can grow from seed planted in midsummer. The Heuchera can be planted in full sun or ranges all the way to partial shade.

The plants should be divided every three years in spring or fall. Water during dry spells to prevent scorching of the leaves. The Coral Bell makes an excellent border plant or plant in front of taller shrubs. Adding 2 or 3 Heuchera to a rock planting or along a hillside provides interest. Watch for crown rot on plants that are not in well drained areas.

The plants bloom in late spring and early summer with tiny greenish-pink or red flowers. You won't be able to see the flowers from a distance.
