A revolution in Heuchera genetics! You’ll be amazed at the unbelievable flower production of ‘Berry Timeless’. A myriad of light pink flowers which age to a deeper rose red are produced in tight wands on 18-20” scapes.
What is so remarkable is what happens when the flowers are spent—they dry in place on the stems similar to what Statice does instead of falling off and leaving bare stems, thus the reference to the everlasting flowers in its name. You’ll get a two toned look of light and dark pink flowers on the same plant for a strong show of color. Even better, this plant blooms and reblooms continuously, not in waves, from early summer to frost!
You’ll have plenty of time to sell this plant in bloom if you're a retailer and loads of flowers to enjoy all summer if you're a gardener. Cut flower producers should also take note of this new everlasting heavy bloomer.
This plant is a Heuchera villosa hybrid. The H. villosa species is a robust, late blooming type that exhibits an increased tolerance of high heat and humidity over other species. Most H. villosas produce cream flowers in midsummer, though they are grown more for their fantastic foliage. H. villosa is native to the southeastern United States.
Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape. Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers. Try cutting a few of the tall flower scapes for fresh bouquets.
