Mixing plants with various textures and colors can improve your landscape's appeal. Dolce Spearmint Coral Bells provides that appealing mix in one pretty package. This Coral Bell (Heuchera) is one of the most versatile and unique plants you can own. Its classic evergreen Heuchera foliage is silvery green with darker green veining. The pink flowers also boast two shades, dark pink on the petal tips and a lighter pink at the base of the flower.
The long-blooming Dolce Spearmint Coral Bells plant looks pretty through winter and is tolerant of salt used on icy sidewalks or driveways.

With its striking colors and textures, Dolce Spearmint is a gorgeous stand-alone featured plant in your landscape or a container. It's also pretty in groups as a low border or groundcover.
