Heuchera villosa 'Apricot' Coral Bells or Alumroot



Heuchera villosa 'Apricot' has pretty apricot orange to pink, scalloped leaves that deepen to burnt orange as the season progresses. In late spring, Heuchera 'Apricot' produces sprays of tiny, long-lasting, rosy pink bell-shaped blooms. Frequently referred to as Coral Bells, their blooms make delicate additions to cut arrangements. Also known as Alumroot, evergreen Heuchera are great perennials for containers as well as the shady border.

Heuchera villosa is native to most of the eastern United States, where it is typically found in rocky open woods or moist, shady ledges and crevices.

Heuchera 'Apricot' prefers mostly shade, particularly in the afternoon and moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Heuchera villosa cultivars are some of the best for humid, southern gardens. Frequent division helps to maintain vigor.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
