Black Pearl Coral Bells
Spring Planting: this product will be shipped late April through May according to your hardiness zone.
Heuchera. Absolutely our new favourite Heuchera! Black Pearls has the darkest leaves we've seen. The delightfully ruffled edges give glimpses of the dark purple undersides of the leaves. Even in full sun, the leaves will remain near-black and shiny. As the leaves mature, some of the oldest ones will develop a shimmering silver. A vigorous and robust plant that adds drama to any space. Height 6-8". 3"plug.

It is very important to plant as soon as possible after you receive them. If it is necessary to store them for a short time before planting them, open the plastic bags. If the roots appear dry, soak them for a few hours in warm water. Store in slightly moist peat moss in a cold, but not freezing location until you can plant. They can also be placed in pots of soil if planting will be delayed for more than 2 weeks. Use any peat-based potting soil and pots with drainage holes.
Soak bare-root perennials in water for a few hours before planting. Unless otherwise specified, bare-root perennials are usually planted with the crown (where the shoots meet the roots) an inch below the soil surface. Firm soil gently to eliminate air pockets and water in well. Mark the area clearly since it may be a while before the plant shows itself.
Space 12-18 inches apart with roots fully covered and crown at soil level.
Grow in well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. In areas with hot summers plant in partial shade. In cold climates, mulch after the ground has frozen to control heaving of the roots. Divide in spring when bloom diminishes and crown becomes woody, usually every 4-5 years. Grows from 12-30 inches tall.
