Bright soda fountain foliage and dainty fizzy blooms, the Cherry Cola Coral Bells (Heuchera 'Cherry Cola') looks as delectably refreshing as the name sounds! The foliage has a dark reddish-brown hue that mimics the look of a cherry cola. Its low-growing leaves are gently lobed with a compact, mounding habit that would fit well in a variety of settings in your yard.
In the spring, tall, 18-inch spires of tiny, cherry-red blossoms rise above the foliage for even more landscape color. Butterflies and other pollinators will be drawn to your yard to partake of its bounty. This floral beauty endures through early summer, and the foliage color maintains its vibrancy until frost. Even when the cold winds blow, your Cherry Cola will still present colorful contrast against the brown hues of winter and its white snow.
Heat and cold hardy, as well as humidity tolerant, Heuchera thrives throughout USDA growing zones 4 to 9 and only grows to 16-18 inches tall and 12-18 inches wide. Space-saving little perennials, their color more than makes up for their size and glows in the shade!
Cherry Cola imparts its radiance to your mixed beds, and enjoy three seasons of color in Perennial borders and Cottage gardens! These frilly leaves also do well as an edging plant or even in containers as filler and spillers! Let these vibrant perennials brighten your foundation plantings as facer plants, or light up a dreary shrub border or evergreen hedge.
The plants will grow to create a low-maintenance groundcover! Adding an amazing designer touch to your landscape! Plant it around the edge of borders, near variegated plants, in the woodland garden, Rock Garden, Perennial border, or in mass to form an attractive ground cover! Particularly showy when planted as a specimen garden among other vibrant colors of other Coral Bells!
Cherry Cola looks great around seating areas, and birdbaths, or create your own Hummingbird garden! Outdoor sculptures and urns become the main feature with a skirting of these around their base. Skirt the trunks of trees or encircle large shrubs where these benefit from their shade and provide facer plantings to hide their bare stems. Soften your home's foundations of pergolas and gazebos with a circle of brilliant greenery.
Coral Bells are content in sun or part shade, tolerating full sun in the cooler USDA growing zones of 4 through 9, and appreciate afternoon shade in the hotter of those climates. Otherwise, you chance leaf burn. Warmer climates will find Heuchera do best in afternoon shade or full shade. Plant in almost any kind of soil, but the best is moderately moist, organically rich, and humusy sites with especially well-drained soil.
Provide access to moisture on a regular basis throughout hot summers and long dry spells. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill. Plus a winter application of compost and more mulch for best results.
Relatively low-maintenance herbaceous Perennial should be cut back in the early spring. Tolerating heat and humidity, it performs well even in the South where it can display evergreen to semi-evergreen tendencies. These perennials appreciate being divided every 3-5 years to maintain vigor. Cherry Cola is drought tolerant and quite hardy. Fast-growing and long-lived, Cherry Cola is an easy-to-care-for perennial. It has no insect or disease problems, and does well in a variety of conditions!
Overall, Cherry Cola is a carefree plant with exceptional benefits. With a few of these in your yard, you can count on outstanding color from spring through fall, and even some winter definition. Why not order several today from Nature Hills?
Coral Bells do best when pruned in the early spring. Leaving the foliage intact as an extra blanket for winter protection over the crown. In some climates, Coral Bells can be semi-evergreen, so leaving those colorful leaves up all winter adds winter interest!
Coral Bells need partial sun/shade or full shade in warmer climates. They do best in the morning sun to dry the leaves of dew and afternoon shade to provide relief from the hot summer sun.
Coral Bells can spread into tidy mounds about 2-3 feet in width but do not spread by rhizomes or stolons further than where they're planted.
Coral Bells love a shaded site in enriched soil that is well-drained. They appreciate regular moisture and a mulched root zone.
Coral Bells are loved by pollinators and hummingbirds! All walks of beneficial pollinators will show up to sip their nectar.
These shade-loving perennials pair with lacy Astilbe and Ferns, other coarse foliage plants like Hosta, and the lobed foliage of Columbines! Try pairing with Barrenworts and Bergenia too!
