HEUCHERA Chatterbox - Coral Bells - Medium 18" - Plant 10 -16" apart. Long blooming deep pink flowers are held aloft on airy stems in May through July.

General Information:
Vigorous and large flowered, these varieties make excellent border plants with their nearly evergreen foliage in neat clumps. Bright flowers are held aloft on airy stems in May through July. Can be used in a shady courtyard pot or as a ground cover under deciduous trees. Avoid dry soil with with full sun, good cut flower, evergreen, good groundcover.

Plant Care:
Benefits from deadheading. Watch for frost heaving - mulch can help. It keeps the mature crown in contact with the soil and keeps the soil moist in the summer as well. Must have good drainage over the winter, though, so don't over-do the overwintering mulching.
