Heuchera 'Canyon Pink' (Canyon Pink Coral Bells) - A low growing perennial with gray mottled lobed leaves. The flowers are a rose pink with lighter centers and the bloom period occurs in the spring and summer. Plant in sun on the coast and light shade inland. Water regularly. Hardy to 0 F. This hybrid by Dara Emery resulted from crossing Heuchera sanguinea with H. rubescens. It was introduced by the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden in 1985. This was the first of the gardens Heuchera introductions and remains as one of the best. Several of the more recent Quartet Series such as H. 'Canyon Melody', H. 'Canyon Duet' and H. 'Canyon Chimes' have 'Canyon Pink' as one parent. 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.
