Coral Flower for Descanso Gardens

Coral Flower (Heuchera sanguinea ) is a perennial that is also sometimes called Alum Root. It blooms from spring through late summer. Breeders have developed many new color varieties that do well in filtered-shade borders. These selections often have white flowers, but are mainly grown for the showy leaves. Coral Bells also make an attractive ground cover. Heuchera sanguinea is very attractive to hummingbirds, especially since it is one of the first red flowers to bloom in spring. Heucheras make a nice cut flower.
