I'm a real fan of coral bells in general, but this one is my absolute favorite. I have a couple in my shade garden and they literally glow in the afternoon sun. The leaves are fairly large and they hold their color very well. The flowers are a light pink. This one isn't as floriferous as some others I have, but I don't mind. GP looks great combined with Tiramisu and Green Spice!

We planted this coral bell last spring. It was one of the first plants to show life after the snow finally melted in early March. It has beautiful "peach" coloring. It was almost covered with a nearby invasive Oriental Limelight artemisia. When we uncovered it, the growth had not been diminished at all. Want to find another one as I don't want to divide this one yet.

I planted this the middle of last summer. After the snow melted it was in the best shape of all the new plants in the same area. It's been a few months since then and I still still can't find leaves that need trimming. New leaves are emerging fine while the old continue to flourish. All visitors this spring have admired and commented on the plant so it definitely has crowd appeal! And definitely a "keeper" for me.

I bought 3 Georgia Peach heucheras in May 2009 as tiny bare-root cuttings. 3 months later, they are now 10" tall and 10" wide. The color is gorgeous--a combination of peach, coral, and rosy red. These have grown faster than expected in a mostly shaded location, and I'm pleased overall. I'll report back when these plants are mature.
