Heuchera 'Canyon Duet' (PP13,280) (Pink and White Coral Bell) - An evergreen perennial that forms low mat-like tufts to about 5 inches tall by 1 foot or more wide with small, 1 -inch wide leaves. The strongly bi-colored flowers of dark pink and white rise above the foliage on 12- 18 inch tall stems in mid spring. The bi-colored look is caused by the dark rose pink flower buds fading first to pale pink then to white as flowering progresses. Plant in light shade with regular summer water - it can be grown in full sun in coastal gardens and is tolerant of a wide variety of soil types. It is hardy to around 10 F. This Dara Emery hybrid of Heuchera 'Canyon Delight' and Heuchera elegans (SBBG# 93-181) was released in 2001 as part of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Heuchera Quartet Series. It has the plant patent number 13,280. In their book "Heuchera and Heucherellas: Coral Bells and Foamy Bells" Timber Press 2005 authors Dan Heims and Grahame Ware note that Linnaeus named Heuchera for Johann Heinrich von Heucher, professor of medicine and Botany at Wittenberg University. They further note that the name Heuchera should be pronounced following the person's name it commemorates so the proper pronunciation is HOY-ker-uh.
