Heuchera x brizoides 'Firefly' (Firefly Coral Bells) - Attractive green foliage and airy bright scarlet flower panicles provide color and contrast to the rock garden or open woodland garden from late spring into summer. Works well as an edging plant. Mass to form an attractive ground cover. A moderate-growing herbaceous perennial with flower stalks reaching 14-18 inches tall in 20 inch wide clumps. Tolerates full sun along the coast and partial shade inland. Requires regular water. Cold hardy to 10-15 degrees F. 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.  This 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 x brizoides 'Firefly'.
