Heuchera 'Lillian's Pink' (Lillian's Pink Coral Bells) - An evergreen perennial with an upright compact habit and larger flowers than most Heuchera. From the tufts of dense green foliage arise the stiff floral stems to 2 feet tall bearing pale pink flowers on pink stems in spring and early summer. Plant in light shade to full sun along coast and irrigate occasionally. This cultivar is noted as tolerating sunnier conditions, even though it has coastal parentage - grows even more compact in the sun. Hardy to 10-15 degrees F. This selection, made by Ron Lutsko, was first introduced by Cal Flora Nursery. It is named after Lillian Henningsen, whose garden it first appeared in as a chance seedling. 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.  The information on this page is based on our research conducted in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it. We will also 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 that would aid others in growing  Heuchera 'Lillian's Pink'.
