Heuchera 'Canyon Belle' (Red Coral Bell) - Small perennial plant mounding to 5 inches tall by 12 inches wide with small, glossy dark green 2" wide leaves. The 18 inch tall red-tinged stems of rich red flowers rise above foliage in mid-spring. Plant in light shade with regular summer water - can be grown in full sun in coastal gardens. Hardy to 0 F. This Dara Emery hybrid of an F2 Heuchera elegans and Heuchera sanguinea (SBBG# 93-179) was released in 2001 as part of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Heuchera Canyon Quartet Series and this cultivar received US Plant Patent PP13,413, which has since expired.. 'Canyon Belle', with the darkest flowers of the series is considered one of the showiest in the Canyon Quartet Series. 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.
