coral bells ‘Palace Purple’

Heuchera micrantha var. diversifolia ‘Palace Purple’ (coral bells ‘Palace Purple’) has beautiful dark purple to olive-green foliage with red undersides growing in mounds up to a foot tall and wide.

The shade this plant receives in hot summers in our Dark Plate helps the foliage retain its color. In late spring or early summer, open panicles of small, pink flowers float above the leaves on dark red stems. If grown in full sun, consistent moisture is needed, and soil should not be allowed to dry out.
