Heuchera 'Electra' PP21856 COPF

Common Name: Coral Bells

Similar in color to Heucherella ‘Stoplight’, this cultivar is a more refined selection that blends easily with other plants in the garden.  

In spring, the leaves emerge electric yellow with bright red veining.  As the season progresses, the colors soften to chartreuse with softer red veining that remains all summer.  The evergreen foliage is tan during winter. 

This plant is a Heuchera villosa hybrid. The villosa species is a large, late blooming type that exhibits an increased tolerance of high heat and humidity over other species. Most 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.
