Heuchera 'Canyon Melody' (Pink and White Coral Bell) - This evergreen mat-like herbaceous perennial is like a diminutive form of one of its parents, the fabulous Heuchera 'Canyon Pink'. It forms 3 -inches tall dense rosettes to 1 foot wide with small 1 -inch wide leaves. In spring, rising above the foliage on densely clothed 12-inch stalks are the medium-pink flowers that have a touch of white. It works well as a groundcover or intermixed with perennials. Plant in light shade with regular summer water - it can be grown in full sun in coastal gardens. It is hardy to 10 F. This Dara Emery hybrid of Heuchera 'Canyon Pink' and Heuchera elegans (SBBG# 93-180) was released in 2001 as part of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Heuchera Quartet Series and received US Plant Patent PP13,276, which has since expired. 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 2000 until 2006. More information on this plant can be found on the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden's Plant Introduction PageThis information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Heuchera 'Canyon Melody'.
