Heuchera

Coral Bells

Maple-like leaves form a dense evergreen base for long slender stems lined with small, urn shaped flowers, ranging in color from white to pink to chartreuse. Heucheras are extremely durable, despite their delicate, even dainty appearance. Long-lived and occasionally drought tolerant, they are appropriate to virtually any garden situation.

Smooth ultradark foliage, burnished with a gem-like luster, is this Heuchera’s stylish signature. Celebrating more vigor and more black than its deeply colored rival, Heuchera ‘Obsidian’, elegant lobed leaves fashion a compact mound, which offsets urn-shaped creamy white flowers. Utilize ‘Blackout’ as a mysterious midnight-hued springboard for golden grasses, yellow-leafed perennials, Japanese Painted ferns and silvery Pulmonarias. (pp#25,280)

Blooms May–June

Size: 16" high x 18" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

Overtop a trim mound of polished leaves, tall spires flaunt exceptional dusty pink flowers that easily meld with other perennials—a plus for this choice long-lived cultivar and for the garden designer. Surround ‘Weston Pink’ with diverse colors: lavender and blue Geraniums, yellow Kniphofias and Achilleas. Plant a large swath for visual impact and for arrangements as well.

Blooms April–July.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

A highly welcome, more compact cultivar, ‘Coral Bouquet’ bears bright coral-colored blossoms several times bigger than most Heucheras. Mounding, mottled green foliage serves as an attractive, low growing foil for the springtime profusion of showy flower clusters.

Blooms April–June.

Size: 20" high x 18" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

Like shiny slabs of jet-black obsidian, smooth ultradark leaves achieve a gem-like luster, while shrouding an elegant compact mound. Dapper foliage, touted as the blackest of all—rounded, lobed and long-petioled—holds its seductive ebony and midnight-maroon coloring through full sun and hot, humid weather. Heightened by tall, supple red-tinted stems with small creamy flowers, reliable ‘Obsidian’ becomes a deep mysterious springboard, accentuating gilt-leafed grasses and perennials, the silvery fronds of Japanese Painted ferns plus spotted Pulmonarias. (pp#14,836)

Blooms June–July

Size: 2' 0" high x 16" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

Heuchera pulchella ‘Raspberry Regal’ (P-0389)

Each $8.00

AVAILABLE MID APRIL 2019

<i>Heuchera pulchella</i> ‘Raspberry Regal’

Excellent for cutting, these tightly clustered, deep rosy pink flowers open from dark, raspberry-red buds held on strong, upright stems that rise 2-½ ft. above the leafy mound of basal foliage. The robust leaves are deep green and sometimes subtly mottled with silver. To ensure cool, moist soil and ample sun, we plant this Heuchera on the edge of our woodland border and back it with Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘alba’.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

Lush verdant foliage offers a dramatic counterpoint to this Heuchera’s uniquely bicolored flower, which is snowy white with a pink-blushed lip. Elevated on 8 to 12 in. tall stems, the blossoms look especially cheerful next to blue blooming Nepetas.

Blooms April–June.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

A superb evergreen cross between Heuchera maxima and Heuchera sanguinea, this vigorous dazzler was introduced in 1958 by the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden. Scalloped bright green leaves describe a dense lustrous base, showcasing the generous offering of vivid rosy red bells on 2 ft. tall flowering spires.

Tantalizing to hummingbirds and other plant enthusiasts, long blooming ‘Santa Ana Cardinal’ relishes cool sunny spots or bright shady ones with average to minimal summer waterings once mature.

Blooms April – July.

Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Zone 7/8.

Spring salutations, early blooms, fresh unfurling foliage!

These early blooming vines and shrubs herald spring!

A choice deciduous shrub for an adequately moist woodland setting, Corylopsis pauciflora offers dangling fragrant primrose-yellow blooms amid graceful branches. The Flowering Current produces long lasting richly colored flowers, bird-friendly berries plus eye-catching autumn color. It thrives in both sun or part shade and handles some drought. 

Easily grown Clematis alpina ‘Constance’ is a small-statured climber that can be showcased in a tight spot or in a patio container. Beloved by gardeners since 1900, Clematis armandii ‘Apple Blossom’ combines lustrous evergreen foliage with copious vanilla-scented blooms, while appreciating a sheltered abode. Both these vines make lovely additions to early spring bouquets.

Spring Salutations!

We’ve been drenched with nearly 60 inches of rain here at the nursery. All that moisture coupled with several warm sunny days, has turned the garden into a verdant wonderland of unfurling shoots, leaves and blossoms. The perennials photographed in this newsletter were taken this week, either in the garden or in our open-sided greenhouses.

Happy Spring and happy digging!
