‘Crimson Curls’ coral bells

Heuchera 'Crimson Curls'

HEW-ker-ah Audio

‘Crimson Curls’ heuchera is fairly pest free, but it requires constant moisture to look its best. White flowers contrast with ruby-colored foliage that deepens in direct sun. ‘Crimson Curls’ flowers in late spring, and if deadheaded, will flower again by late summer. It needs too much water to grow well in containers. Instead, use it massed along a walkway or in a woodland bed. -Ron Smith, Regional Picks: Upper Plains, Fine Gardening issue #120
