What an eye catching beauty! This Heuchera Palace Purple, also known as Coral Bells Palace Purple,Will grow 18-24 inches and likes full sun to partial shade and has beautiful mahogany foliage and white blooms. Grown from Coral Bells seeds, this is an extremely popular perennial garden flower. This Coral Bells Purple Palace sports very dark foliage of a gleaming mahogany-maroon, and it is offset by pure white flowers from late spring through late summer. The foliage makes an attractive addition to the sunny or partially shaded flower garden, growing in lush profusion on uniform, mounding plants. On dainty, tall flower stalks, the blooms appear in neat columns of little bells, 6 inches above the foliage. The foliage is semi-evergreen on this hardy perennial plant.. Zones 4-8
Many gardeners recommend that Heuchera seeds be stratified, which means that they must be refrigerated and put through a cold period lasting several weeks. Once the flower seed has been refrigerated for several weeks, it can be sown indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost. Using quality starter mix and starter trays, sow Coral Bells seeds into cells, pressing the flower seed into the soil. Keep Heuchera seed moist. When temperature are consistently warm outdoors and danger of frost has passed, Heuchera seedlings can be hardened off and moved outdoors.
Also the great thing about this perennial is once it is established after a year or so you can easily dig up this plant and divide it to make new plants. I do this about every 2 years. They are so easy to transplant (has a bit of shock but I guarantee you will bounce right back)
All my seeds come in reusable ziplock bags with planting instructions.
