i love the foliage of this plant. The flowers really are not all that great and are to small to make much of a impact in the garden. but the foliage is great if you have alot of shade.

'Coral Bouquet' is a Heuchera grown primarily for its large, showy, pink flowers. The small, green leaves do make an attractive low mound. This plant has been derived from alpine types and wants excellent drainage and bright light, but not hot sun.
