Heucheras, also known as Coral Bells, are amazing perennial plants, famed for their spectacular foliage in a huge range of colours with wonderful leaf shapes forming low growing evergreen or semi-evergreen mounds.
From the ‘Fox’ series of Heucheras, bred by Richard and Vicky Fox at their Jubilee Cottage Nursery in Cheshire where they hold the National Collection which currently exceeds 450 varieties, ‘Silver Celebration’ has been bred to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the nursery.
This is an incredibly attractive Heuchera, with unusually large and deeply ruffled, dark veined metallic silver leaves that have vibrant purple undersides. During the summer, a profusion of bell-shaped white flowers appear on long, upright stems above the foliage. The flowers are larger than those of most Heucheras and attract a host of pollinating insects. They’re also ideal for cutting for delicate indoor displays.
A handsome plant with colouring unlike any other, ‘Silver Celebration’ will make an impressive specimen growing in a large patio pot, or grow it in borders with other Heuchera varieties so that their foliage colours can compliment each other. These adaptable plants are happy in sun or partial shade and aren’t too fussy about soil conditions, as long as it isn’t heavy and waterlogged as that will cause the crown to rot. Usually evergreen, severe winters may cause leaf loss, but they’ll regrow the following spring.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant, reaching a height of 35cm (14in) and spread of 45cm (18in).
