Strikingly deep-purple, lobed foliage is the most noteworthy feature of this member of the Northern Exposure Heuchera series. This plant forms low, upright mounds that make them versatile and easy to grow in multiple ways in the landscape. Dainty white flowers appear starting in spring on stalks that rise above the leaves and attract hummingbirds and butterflies. 

This deer-resistant perennial has a compact, mounding habit and few disease problems, making it perfect for a low-maintenance landscape. Several planted together form an attractive  ground cover around tree plantings. The Northern Exposure Purple Coral Bells also work well as a container specimen in a shady area. The purple foliage makes an excellent addition to a mixed planter for a shady spot. 

Northern Exposure Purple Coral Bells Care

This heuchera prefers partial shade; harsh sun can cause leaf scorch. At planting, make sure the top of the root mass is at or above the surrounding soil level to avoid crown rot. This plant has excellent drought tolerance once established, but benefits from supplemental water during the growing season following planting. In cold areas, a layer of organic material mulch applied around the plant in late fall prevents frost heaving the plant up.

Coral bells like this one have few pruning needs. Simply cut off spent flower stalks to keep the plant looking tidy and remove any damaged leaves in early spring or just as new growth is starting to emerge. 

Northern Exposure Purple Coral Bells Spacing

The Northern Exposure purple coral bells typically have a maximum height of 10 to 12 inches not counting the flower stalk and a spread of 18 to 22 inches. Space multiple plants about 20 inches apart. Plants can be divided every 3 years or, if in a container, repotted at a similar interval.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
