Heuchera 'Sugar Plum' (Coral Bells)

Coral Bells 'Sugar Plum', Alum Root 'Sugar Plum', Coral Flower 'Sugar Plum'


Compact, Heuchera 'Sugar Plum' is an eye-catching cultivar of Coral Bells with its frosty plum-purple foliage which turns silver in summer and winter. From late spring to fall, masses of small, bell-shaped, silvery-pink flowers keep blooming on long dark burgundy stems rising up to 26 in. (65 cm) above the evergreen foliage. Perfect for the landscape or containers where it combines extremely well with other shade loving plants in a wide range of colors.

  • This clump-forming perennial forms basal mounds, up to 12 in. tall (30 cm) with a spread of 18 in. (45 cm).
  • This sturdy performer is not only easy to grow, but also requires little maintenance and is virtually pest and disease free! This Heuchera is prized by gardeners for its heat and humidity tolerance.
  • Performs best in full sun or part shade, in rich, humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils. If grown in full sun, make sure the soil remains consistently moist or the foliage might decline. Thrives in dry shade, once established. It is attractive to butterflies and often ignored by deer.
  • A spectacular addition to beds, borders, rock gardens, woodland gardens and is ideal as groundcover, edger along paths or in containers. Fabulous when planted in groups!
  • Divide clumps in spring every 3-4 years.
  • Remove stems of faded flowers to promote additional bloom. Apply winter mulch after the ground freezes to help prevent root heaving.
