Vivid Delta Dawn Coral Bells (Heuchera 'Delta Dawn') are a variety of Coral Bells with exceptional foliage color. It would be perfect for those shady spots in your yard where you need something small yet colorful. It would also make a lovely border along your sidewalk or entryway.

The most lauded feature of your Delta Dawn is of course its unique foliage. Rounded, scalloped-edged leaves present dynamic color with their energetic blend of lime and yellow, accented with red veining. In late spring to early summer the leaf red veins intensify, running like rivers to the sea with all the colors of a morning sunrise. This is where the name Delta Dawn comes from!

The transitioning of colors as the plant matures through the seasons presents a mix of green shades amid the more colorful vegetation. Tall shoots adorned with sprays of delicate, white bellflowers shoot up in the spring, a charming surprise amid the colorful foliage and a welcome site to your butterflies and other pollinators!

Planting and Application:

Delta Dawn is an evergreen perennial with a mounded habit that presents a pleasing shape in your landscape even without its colorful features. Tuck into shady areas to add bright color and texture while brightening the gloom. Use in mixed-perennial borders and shade gardens, adding a gorgeous accent and focal point throughout perennial, cottage, rock and Rain Gardens. Use as a facer plant or edging in gardens or in front of your foundation plantings.

Delta Dawn is an adorable little plant with particularly colorful foliage that will really stand out amid your other plantings. Adaptable to grow in containers and window boxes, porch planters and as a filler and color in containers anywhere shady. Don't forget to snip a few of the tall, slender blossoms for your bouquets, but leave a few for the hummingbirds and butterflies.

  • Clean Mound in Spring
