As soon as plants are up again and I know what I have (will prob have spiderwort, bees balm, purple coneflower, lambs ear, and maybe some more, I don't really know. I am in the process of trying to go from more annuals to more perennials so someday I'll have a lot more to share. Currently under a lot of snow (thank God for the snow to keep plants warm) with another bought of snow coming in tonight. I really don't need coral bells though, I have a bad tendency to kill them when I have tried them.

Here's an excerpt from an article about coral bells on DG:

If you donít have Coral Bells (Heuchera) in your gardening repertoire, you are missing out on a vast palette of purples, chartreuses, grays and oranges in your yard. Also known as Alum Root, Heuchera (pronounced HEW-ker-uh) is a beautiful genus of perennial foliage plants that will add a punch of color to any spot in your garden. Heucheras come in all sorts of colors, shapes, sizes and growing needs. Some do well in shade; others can thrive in full sun. They are drought tolerant, very cold hardy (Zone 4), and many of them will even stay evergreen through the winter.

Can you be more specific about what you have?

Sorry if I am not being as specific as I can be. When this was purchased a few years ago it was simply labeled Heuchera "Coral Bells". I had assumed Coral Bells is the cultivar of the more basic Heuchera. It is green when new leaves come on and they mature to a very deep burgundy/purple color. I am still rather new at posting on here or would try to post a photo.

It sounds very pretty. I have a few of the dark leaved cultivars and love them.

If you have pictures on your computer already, it's easy to post them. You just click on 'choose a file,' then when the box comes up you navigate to the folder that has the one you want to show.

Good luck!

I would love to add some more to my garden. I already have the older variety and a few of the newer ones. Mike
