Heuchera 'Silver Gumdrop'
Common name: Coral Bells
If you’re looking for a silver Heuchera to brighten up your shade area, you’ve found it. Unlike other silver Heucheras on the market, ‘Silver Gumdrop’ has vibrant pink flowers instead of the typical white or cream. Match it with its silver, iridescent leaves with a semi-glossy finish and you have a winning combination. ‘Silver Gumdrop’ is a smaller scale Heuchera and a vigorous grower for its size. Its silver leaves take on a rosy blush overtone later in the season for additional interest. Proven Winners Variety.
This plant is a Heuchera villosa hybrid. The 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.
