Guacamole Coral Bells (Heuchera ‘Guacamole’)

Guacamole Coral Bells

Bright lime green foliage is made in the shade! The brilliant hue of Guacamole Coral Bells (Heuchera ‘Guacamole’) is consistent from top to bottom, forming a cool green mound of ruffled, textured leaves!

Bursting onto the scene in early spring and lasting until frost, these plants are occasionally evergreen in warm climates. The soft foliage is the perfect backdrop for the tall, dainty sprays of tiny, creamy-white, bell-shaped flowers that form in summer! These beautiful blooms attract their fair share of butterflies and even a hummingbird or two.

These blooms add frilly, fine-texture to your garden and light up the gloomy shade, but they’re also beautiful in bouquets and floral arrangements! Guacamole is a versatile plant, as at home in the garden as it is in shaded planters on your porch or patio. They always form neat and tidy clumps that are low maintenance and resistant to slugs.

Planting and Application:

Guacamole makes you want to break out the chips and dip and gather some friends! Plant around your shady seating areas where these plants thrive in the cooling relief of the shade of larger trees and shrubs. Create impressive groundcover and mass plantings of eye-popping color! Or use as facer plants to hide the bare stems of larger, more mature plants and along the front of your foundation plantings.

Ideal in shaded cottage gardens, or as edging to ease the transition between lawn and garden, this is versatile filler for your perennial and pollinator borders. Coral Bells add fantastic contrast as both spiller and filler to shaded patio pots and containers.
