Tender New Leaves

Much as I applaud spring blooms, emerging new foliage is just as thrilling!  Coral bells are a delightful example.  The tender new leaves arise in glistening newness – demonstrated above by glossy cinnamon that fades to amber, fresh ruffled green, perfect crisp form in maroon, and lustrous purple-black.  If your coral bells are aging or have ‘lifted’ over the winter so that the crowns are exposed, then your foliage is probably shrinking.  Give them new life by topping up the soil around the crowns, or digging the plant to divide and re-plant – either way the way the crowns should be at ground level.  Read more about coral bells (Heuchera) by clicking here.
