Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Bellisgirl On Feb 7, 2007, Bellisgirl from Spokane, WA wrote:

This is an adorable plant. It is a relative of Heuchera (coral-bells). Ive had mine for three years. The place I originally had it was a bit too dry for it. So I moved it to my partial-shade garden, where there is good drainage and the ground is almost perpetually moist. It has beautiful pale pink flowers that do resemble foam. Will rebloom often if deadheaded. Will eventually spread to form a low carpet.

I have grown "Spring Symphonie" in the DFW area for 2 years and it has remained evergreen, though smaller in size during the cold months. It has done very well next to a wax myrtle on the east side where it receives lite but no direct sun. This jewel survived a February storm where the ground was covered in snow and ice for several days.
Blooming begins in April and continues thru May until it gets hot. It stays very compact and I love the mottled green and purple leaves.
