Heuchera 'Canyon Chimes' (PP13,281) (Pink Coral Bell) - A good evergreen groundcover perennial with compact, mat-like rosettes that grow to only 2 inches tall by a foot or more wide with 1 inch wide leaves. Above the foliage rise wands of dark fuchsia-pink flowers 15" above the foliage over a long period in spring. Plant in light shade with regular summer water - it can be grown in full sun in coastal gardens. Hardy to 10 F. A very reliable coral bell that blooms well in small pots. This Dara Emery hybrid of Heuchera 'Canyon Delight' and Heuchera elegans (SBBG# 93-182) was released in 2001 as part of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Heuchera 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. We grew this cultivar from 1999 until 2004.More information on this plant can be found on the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden's Plant Introduction Page Information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips would aid others in growing Heuchera 'Canyon Chimes'.
