Heuchera Plants produce low-growing foliage in absolutely stunning colors; some have sparse blossoms while some bloom prolifically, but all are delicate, borne on panacles that wave in gentle breezes above the foliage mound. Most Heuchera plants are evergreen or semi-evergreen, making them a highly sought-after perennial.
Heuchera, pronounced HEW-kur-uh, also commonly called Coral Bells or Alumroot, can be used either in borders or as a focal point, in a rock garden for example. Many use them as a ground cover and their compact, mounding habit and shallow roots make them the perfect container plant. Most cultivars require evenly moist soil, but hybridization has resulted in some remarkably drought-tolerant, sun-loving species, as well.
