Heucheras, also known as coral bells, are one of the most adaptable perennials available. The Purple Palace Heuchera is one of the most attention-grabbing varieties with leaves ranging from olive green to a deep eggplant hue - sometimes on the same leaf!
Available in many colors ranging from deep red to bright green, many gardeners layer different heuchera varieties in their landscaping to add color diversity. With its vivid color, Purple Palace Heuchera adds depth and differentiation to overly-green landscaping. When your plant blooms in the spring, too, it adds even more color, with its tiny white bells and eye-catching pink stems.
What’s more, your new coral bells grow very low to the ground, only reaching about one to two feet tall at maturity. This makes them an excellent choice for height diversity in your yard, especially since heucheras appreciate some shade. So, you can plant them near bushes or shrubs, or underneath trees, to achieve the look you’re seeking.
Most gardeners choose to plant their Purple Palace Heuchera in borders or edges, though it also thrives in containers, as well. Though they can adapt to sun, their preference for limited light also makes them a perfect choice for shade gardens. This easy-care plant also requires limited maintenance other than rich soil and regular watering!
With its unique color, the low-growing Purple Palace Heuchera is sure to shake up your ground cover. Order yours today!

How tall will my heuchera grow?
This plant often serves as ground cover, since it only reaches one to two feet tall at maturity.
How much care does my Purple Palace Heuchera require?
This easy-care plant requires little other than rich soil and weekly waterings, unless you live in a hot place or keep your plant in a container. In these cases, you may need to water it more than once a week.
Your Purple Palace Heuchera thrives in rich soil and a somewhat shady spot. So, plant accordingly; this is particularly important if you live in a hot or sunny area.
If your plant doesn’t get rain at least once a week, be sure to water it. Heucheras in full sun, hotter areas, or containers often need watering even more regularly, too.
You only need to fertilize your plant if it isn’t growing well; if this is the case, you can apply a 5-10-5 fertilizer in the spring.
Dead or damaged leaves and flowers inhibit growth, so regular removal is important.
