Heuchera 'Delta Dawn'

Delta Dawn Coral Bells

Evergreen Perennial

Heuchera 'Delta Dawn' is an incredibly useful plant for adding long-lasting color to containers and mixed plantings. Its foliage undergoes a number of delightful changes during the season. Its magnificent, large, round leaves develop dark, reddish centers in the spring and fall; in summer red veins run across the gold to lime main leaf color. In my experience, performance can vary widely between different varieties of coral bells. In my garden, I have found Delta Dawn to be a sturdy and reliable grower.
