Berry Smoothie Coral Bells
The juicy bright pink foliage of Berry Smoothie Coral Bell (Heuchera ‘Berry Smoothie’) adds a jolt of color to any shady area with its large, textured 5-inch rose-pink leaves that hold their intense color all summer and into the autumn!
Slender reddish stems hold dainty pink blooms aloft for pollinators and hummingbirds and add a lovely layer of delight to these bright foliage plants! This Coral Bell presents a big bold habit with excellent color all year round. Add a few of both the leaves and flowers in floral arrangements for brilliant color indoors and out!
Also known as Alum Root, Heuchera are very easy-to-grow perennial plants that grow 18-28 inches in height and spread 18 inches wide, forming rounded, spreading space-saving mounds. The colorful and robust leaves have pointed lobes and deep veins for a lot of texture! Hardy throughout USDA growing 4-9, these are cold-hardy tender perennials.
Berry Smoothie adds a bit of juicy flavor to any perennial garden with its texture, vigor, and vibrant color! Perfect in the shade garden, these plants light up the gloom with their color and add a light and airy effect as edging, in eye-catching groupings, or as low facer plants. Add a touch of color to Cottage borders, and add vibrance to pollinator borders.
Plant in containers or this plant will live just about anywhere! Add color to seating areas, big mixed planters, or as specimen plantings with a spiller and a thriller to really show off their bright color. Balcony plantings and poolside seating both gain enormous boosts of color!
Cold and drought tolerant and withstanding heat and humidity, nothing seems to faze this Perennial plant. Plant in either full shade or partial shade, but you’ll have better color and more flowers in more sun. Plant in enriched, well-drained soil that remains moderately, consistently moist. But once established, Coral Bells can be drought tolerant. In climates that are more arid or prone to drought, all plants appreciate a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch to hold in moisture and keep the roots cool. Prune back foliage in early spring before new growth begins.
The outstanding and colorful foliage of the Berry Smoothie Coral Bells is always there as other plants come in and out of bloom!
