Heuchera ‘Paris’ PP18,881

Heuchera 'Paris'

Heuchera ‘Paris’ has got to be one of my most favorite Heuchera. I love the fact that the bright red flowers bloom almost all summer long. Heuchera are known for their great foliage colors, but most have insignificant flowers( in my opinion). ‘Paris’ will not disappoint in either of these categories!- Heidi

(Coral Bells) Heuchera ‘Paris‘ PP18,881 is a free-flowering cousin to ‘Hollywood’ PP17,129 with striking, medium size white-veiled leaves that give rise to columns of large, deep rose colored flowers. An excellent repeat bloomer which makes ‘Paris’ PP18,881 great in containers and in the border. Hummingbirds and butterflies will love the bright color!

(Coral Bells) Heuchera ‘Miracle‘ is a hot new variety that truly is a miracle in Heuchera breeding! The plant goes through several changes in leaf coloration throughout the seasons. In the spring, the young foliage is chartreuse with a heavy smattering of reddish purple in the center. As the foliage matures, it turns brick red with a bright chartreuse to gold edge and silvered undersides. Try planting near a walkway or in a container where passerby’s can enjoy its beauty up close. Heuchera ‘Miracle‘ is a very good grower that is tolerant of high heat and humidity!
