Heuchera 'Fire Alarm'

Fire Alarm Coral Bells

Evergreen, Semi-evergreen Perennial

Arguably the reddest form of Heuchera, Fire Alarm sports bold red foliage that changes tones with the seasons. Great in combination with a variety of foliage colors, but looks especially wonderful with blue or silver which has a cooling effect, or jazz it up by pairing it with chartreuse or golden foliage. Great choice for containers or use it in mixed beds as a foliage accent or as an edging plant in front of the border.
