Coral Bells (2 Gallon Container)
"The genus Heuchera includes at least 50 species of herbaceous
perennial plants in the family Saxifragaceae, all native to North America.
Common names include alumroot and coral bells. They have palmately
lobed leaves on long petioles, and a thick, woody rootstock. The genus
was named after Johann Heinrich von Heucher (1677–1746), an 18th

terra cotta-colored flowers, can be found in the warm, dry canyons of
Arizona. Gardeners and horticulturists have developed a multitude of
hybrids between various Heuchera species. There is an extensive array
of blossom sizes, shapes, and colors, foliage types, and geographic
