Purple Palace Coral Bells

Purple Palace Coral Bells


The Heuchera 'Palace Purple', Heuchera micrantha, also known as Alumroot or Coral Bell, is one of the most popular Coral Bells on the market. Being named Perennial of the Year in 1991, one can see why. With its unique deep purple foliage, fading to bronzy green in hot summers and its dark red stems, makes it a little different than the rest. In the springtime, small pinkish and white flowers appear that last into the summer, however, Coral Bells are not known for their flowers, but their foliage. Palace Purple has a plant spread of 10-15' and a height of 12-18'. It is best to grow 'Palace Purple' in medium wet, well-drained soils, in full shade. (It can tolerate some morning sun.) 'Palace Purples' looks especially good around the edge of borders, near variegated plants, woodland edges, rock gardens, perennial borders, or in mass to form an attractive ground cover.
