Gardeners' Notes:

In 2011 spring, we planted five Peach Flambe plants as the color looked so good. They seemed to do very well all thru spring and early summer, but then starting mid-summer we started to lose one plant after another. Three plants perished in summer and then one of the two remaining also died in October-November time frame. So we had one remaining thru the winter, which again did very well this spring but now in mid-May it has started withering! So in all we had very poor experience with Peach Flame. (We had also planted four Georgia Peach at the same time last year, which have done very well throughout. They have been very robust and beautiful this year!!)

Beautiful but short-lived for me. Lived for 3 years while all my other coral bells continue to thrive. Did not survive the cold, wet winter that the others sailed through in the same locations.

Such a beautiful plant! I had high hopes when I planted 3 of them amongst my patch of Heucheras. They were located in part to mostly shade (2-4 hours of direct sun in the summer), along with Heuchera 'Caramel', 'Color of Beauty', and now 'Plumb Pudding'. All three of them have withered, while the other Heucheras are thriving. I may try again in a sunnier spot because 'Peach Flamb' is my favorite Heuchera in terms of looks, but I'm rather discouraged.
