Heuchera micrantha
“Alum Root” “Coral Bells”

An EASY & excellent choice for planting UNDER REDWOODS & LIVE OAKS. Native to the Bay Area & much of the western US, & thriving in bright to medium shade, Heuchera micrantha forms a 1’x1’ evergreen clump of prettily scalloped bright green leaves that would be lovely even if it never bloomed. From mid-Spring to early Summer, graceful, airy panicles of glimmering, tiny bell-shaped flowers in pink or cream rise another 12” above the foliage. Very nice massed in a native shade garden with decent drainage, or grow it here & there in the flower garden, especially beside or beneath rose bushes for a weed suppressing foliar accent. Though it requires no summer water once established, it looks much prettier in summer with a once-a-week watering.
