Heuchera Melting Fire Seed

Heuchera (Heuchera Micrantha Melting Fire) - Grown from flower seed, this Heuchera Melting Fire, also known as Coral Bells Melting Fire, has strong, curled, intense purple-red foliage. Young leaves on a mature plant are bright red, giving the mound a 'hot' center. Flower stems, 18 inches, are also deep-red, carrying small clusters of white flowers from May through June. The foliage height is 10 inches, making a nice clump of attractive color. This award winning Heuchera plant grows in a uniform habit and can be grown in full sun to partial shade. It attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, and it makes a nice cut flower as well.

Many gardeners recommend that Heuchera seeds be stratified, which means that they must be refrigerated and put through a cold period lasting several weeks. Once the Coral Bells seeds has been refrigerated for several weeks, it can be sown indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost. Using quality starter mix and starter trays, sow the flower seeds into cells, pressing them into the soil. Keep the Heuchera seed moist. When temperature are consistently warm outdoors and danger of frost has passed, young Heuchera plants can be moved outdoors.
