What is the difference between Heuchera and Heucherella?
Similarly, it is asked, what does Heuchera look like?
Most varieties are a deep purple or burgundy, but colors ranging from red to lime green are available too. Heuchera have small bunches of flowers that grow on a long stalk, or thyrse. These flowers are delicate and colorful, but are not very flashy. Popping coral bells into your containers is another smart choice.
Likewise, how do you propagate Heuchera? Take leaf-bud cuttings of heuchera any time during the growing season, although spring is best because it allows the parent plant plenty of time to recover before winter. Dip the cutting in rooting hormone, and place it in either seed-starting mix or a 50/50 mix of peat and perlite.
Correspondingly, can Heuchera tolerate sun?
While hosta, ferns, and heuchera (coral bells) are typically considered best for shady or part-sun locations, some varieties do well in sunny spots. Sun-Tolerant Heucheras: Generally green or darker-colored heucheras tolerate sun well, though others are being bred with more sun-tolerance.
Does Heuchera dieback in winter?
Heuchera-Coral Bells is a perennial plant, which means that it dies back in the winter but comes back up again in the spring. Ideally you should cut them back right to ground in the late fall after you have experienced a good hard freeze in your area.
