HEUREKA™ Black Knight Coral Bells - Heuchera - Shade Perennial - 2.5" Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
This selection comes from a series of new compact coral bells exhibiting exciting colours on dense, short plants. Large, lobed leaves begin green but quickly mature to reddish-black with a silver overlay. Flowers are insignificant.
Protect from hot afternoon sun to prevent leaf scorch. Remove any winter-burned leaves in the spring, otherwise no pruning is required.
Heuchera make excellent border plants with their nearly evergreen foliage in neat clumps. Dainty flowers are held aloft on airy stems May through July. These versatile perennials can be used in a shady courtyard pot or perfect under deciduous trees. Prefers average to moist soil conditions.
Heuchera Plant Care:
Benefits from deadheading. Watch for frost heaving - mulch can help. It keeps the mature crown in contact with the soil and keeps the soil moist in the summer as well. Must have good drainage over the winter, though, so don't over-do the overwintering mulching. Shear off any damaged leaves in early spring to make room for new foliage. Can be divided every 3 years in spring.
