Heuchera (Coral Bells) micrantha ‘Palace Purple’

This coral bells cultivar is a clump-forming perennial which features a basal mound (typically to 12″ tall) of maple- or ivy-like long-petioled leaves (3-5″ wide) which are an attractive deep-purple above and beet-red beneath. ‘Palace Purple’ is one of the most popular Coral Bells on the market. Foliage color may fade to a bronze-green in hot summers. Tiny, pinkish white, bell-shaped flowers in open, airy panicles are borne on slender, wiry, dark red stems extending well above the mound of leaves, typically to a height of 18-22″ in late spring to early summer. Low, non-spreading mounds of foliage topped by airy clusters of small bell-shaped flowers. The foliage height on this variety is between 6-12″. Attractive foliage and airy flower panicles provide color and contrast to the rock garden, perennial border, open woodland garden or shade garden. Good edging plant. Mass to form an attractive ground cover. These plants look good with Artemisia, ornamental grasses or low ground covers.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Best grown in organically rich, humusy, medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. In cold winter climates, a winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving (clumps are shallow-rooted and will develop woody bases rather quickly). Divide clumps in spring every 3-4 years.

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems.
