Heuchera is a genus of evergreen, herbaceous perennial plants in the family Saxifragaceae, all native to North America. Common names include alumroot and coral bells.

 

Modern heuchera leaf colors include green, chartreuse, yellow, peach, pinkish-red, copper and purple, and every shade in between. Coral Bell leaves are often patterned with contrasting leaf veins in silver, or in a darker shade than the main leaf color. Coral bells were originally grown for their flowers, which are great butterfly attractors. Although modern breeders of landscape heucheras have not focused on the flowers, they are still quite attractive...clusters of dozens of tiny bell-like flowers at the end of a tall wiry stalk during the summer. Heuchera looks great planted in a mass or paired with hosta, ophiopogon, phlox and tricyrtis.

Rosy-pink flowers add a touch of romance when displayed against the dark glossy foliage. The foliage is much darker than that of older varieties like 'Java Red'. It contrasts beautifully with the rosy-pink flowers, making for a high impact display in the garden. This variety produces copious amounts of flowers in spring, and will re-bloom throughout the summer. The trumpet-like flowers are adored by hummingbirds! Try using Wine & Roses weigela's colorful branches in flower arrangements. It can also be enjoyed as an accent plant or used for a dramatic mass planting. It is fast growing and trouble free, making it an easy way to add season long color to the garden.

Humpty Dumpty Spruce is a wonderful dwarf evergreen tree adapted for the coldest parts of the country. It is hardy to minus 50 degrees, and grows steadily into a rounded, egg-shaped plant that can reach 6 feet tall and the same across at maturity. It has tiny, dense needles of a waxy blue-green color, crowded together on equally dense shoots radiating from a mass of branches. The dense shoots and needles completely hid the inner branches, making a compact ball of colorful foliage. All year round, this happy plant will bring joy into your garden, and your children will love having their very own nursery rhyme character right outside their door. It is a great plant among the planting around your house, in beds or among boulders, or in pots and planter boxes for winter effect. You can then plant annuals flowers in the pots in spring, for variety and color all summer.
