Description

 

The Heuchera ‘Peach Crisp’ is a genus from the Saxifragaceae family. The common name for Heuchera is coral bells or alumroot. This coral bells is native to the western part of North America.

The stems of the flowers of the Heuchera ‘Peach Crisp’ are about 14 inches (35 cm) high and rise above the foliage with panicles of white flowers that attract butterflies, bees and bumblebees. The leafless flower stems are sturdy and stay upright.

The leaves are especially beautiful and vary in colour. That depends on the age of the leaves and the amount of sun and moist. This was the reason why I have chosen this coral bells. Because of the leaves you have a colourful accent in your garden even if there are no flowers. When the leaves emerge they are pinkish red, then they fade to shades of peach and later in the season they turn more green.

The foliage of the Heuchera 'Peach Crisp’ is essentially evergreen. That depends for a large part on the severity of the winter. In spring new leaves will replace the old ones.

The Heuchera 'Peach Crisp’ is drought, heat and humidity tolerant and also does well in dry shade. The coral bells tolerates part shade but only when the soil is moist enough.
