In Zone 8 with morning and some afternoon sun. It thrives well. By the second year. I was able to separate and add it to my other container gardens.
The Crimson Coral Bells flowers are an ideal candidate for decorating your foliage. With Crimson Coral Bells, you get a unique contrast of color, as the ruby red of the flowers hang down over the dark green rosettes of leaves at the base of the plant. This contrast can be used well for all types of gardening on small and large scales. In a large setting of typical foliage, these plants may offer the aesthetic edging you've been looking for to offset the overwhelming mesh of green. They are also used frequently in a decorative manner, to outline the base of a statue or fill the drab void of an empty pot or trough. They are known to thrive in all but the extremes of cold, and grow to a height of approximately 12'-18". Not only are Crimson Coral Bells versatile in their use, but they are also well loved by hummingbirds and are sure to be a visibly pleasing addition to your garden family.
First named in 1730 by European botanist Johan Heinrich von Heuchera, Coral Bells also go by the botanical name Huechera. Since then, Heuchera has found its way into European and western gardens around the world! Today, Huechera Coral Bells are generally characterized as a rock garden plant and are used for outdoor patio borders, firescaping, and woodland garden decoration.
