Heuchera 'Black Pearl'
Common name: Coral Bells
If you’re going to choose just one Heuchera for your garden, this is the one! ‘Black Pearl’ forms an incredibly dense habit of shiny, jet black leaves with scalloped, ruffled edges. Each 4-4½” leaf has rosy purple undersides, revealed with the intense ruffling of the leaves. Oldest leaves have a slight silver overlay. To top it off, ‘Black Pearl’ keeps its intense black color even in full sun, instead of bleaching to brown. White flowers with pink calyxes appear in midsummer (requires vernalization).
PRIMO® Heuchera differ from the DOLCE® Series with larger, faster growing habits and a more substanial landscape presence.
This plant is a Heuchera villosa hybrid. The H. villosa species is a large, late blooming type that exhibits an increased tolerance of high heat and humidity over other species. Most produce cream flowers in midsummer, though they are grown more for their fantastic foliage. H. villosa is native to the southeastern United States.
Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape. Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers. Try cutting a few of the tall flower scapes for fresh bouquets.
