Silver Scrolls Coral Bells

Availability: Out of stock

Get silvery foliage that stands out in the shade! The Silver Scrolls Coral Bells (Heuchera x 'Silver Scrolls') have unique plum and silver foliage with deep-purple veins! The scalloped margins of the leaves and prominent veins add texture and interest as the pewter foliage gradually matures to green throughout the year. Also known as Alumroot/Alum Root, these are vibrant and unexpected foliage plants and remarkably easy to grow for gardeners of all levels!

In the springtime, creamy white flowers appear that last into the summer! These are held on tall, slender, wiry stems and look like tiny and dainty fairy bells high above the silvery leaves! Pollinators like bees, butterflies, and even Hummingbirds seek these nectar-rich blossoms out all summer long.

However, Coral Bells are not known for their flowers, but for their foliage! In fact, in hot climates and mild winters, Heuchera can often be evergreen to semi-evergreen for color all year! Very cold-hardy and humidity-resistant throughout USDA growing zones 3 to 9, there is little that fazes these tough perennial plants, including deer and rabbits!

Planting and Application:

The smaller, space-saving size of Silver Scrolls is versatile in large and small gardens! Add silvery cooling color around your poolside and decks, shaded porches, and patios, or even around a shady front porch. Mix with purples, burgundy, white and variegated plants to maximize the foliage, or get a bit broody by mixing Silver Scrolls with black and dark-leaved plants, or flowers!

Having a mounded, compact habit, this Coral Bell is an excellent choice for mixed or specimen containers and planter gardens as spillers and fillers. Perennial and Cottage gardens, Rose and Rock Gardens all gain a unique foliage edging and border plant! Use as living groundcover mulch and let Coral Bells mingle throughout the landscape between larger shrubs and trees where it dances in their shade.

Create the shade garden of your dreams by mixing these bright perennials among variegated Hosta, Painted Ferns Begonia, Barrenworts, and of course, other Coral Bells! There's such a wide variety of colors to choose from that you'll have trouble choosing just one!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Coral Bells grow best in enriched well-drained soils in part shade. Plant these Perennials do well in more sun in the northern part of its range and afternoon shade in the south, or even in full shade in the hottest climates. Keep them looking their best, by ensuring you water during hot, dry weather, giving the plant about one inch of water per week. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.

An easy-care perennial, Coral Bells should be cut back in the early spring. Divide every 3-5 years to maintain vigor. Tolerating heat and humidity, it is low-maintenance and performs well even in the South where it can display evergreen tendencies. Cold and drought tolerant and withstanding heat and humidity, nothing seems to faze this plant. Deer resistant.
