Description / Heuchera 'Carnival Cocomint' Coral Bells

Introducing Heuchera 'Carnival Cocomint'?a captivating evergreen perennial that graces your garden with its vibrant presence across three seasons, and even year-round in warmer climates. Bursting into bloom from early to late spring, this Heuchera x hybrida variety, also known as heuchera, coral bells, or alumroot, captivates with its stunning foliage and delicate blossoms. Let's dive into the details of this remarkable plant.

Known primarily for its dazzling, intensely colored foliage, 'Carnival Cocomint' boasts petite, heavily textured leaves that shimmer with a slight gloss. Lime green with striking dark veins and mesmerizing purple centers, the foliage exhibits its deepest hues during the cooler temperatures of spring and fall. Picture-perfect sprays of dainty blossoms dance atop long, slender stems, seemingly floating above the foliage, attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds while gracing floral arrangements with enduring beauty.

This clump-forming herbaceous plant showcases excellent vigor and a low, mounding habit, forming an alluring basal rosette of leaves. Versatile in its application, Heuchera 'Carnival Cocomint' shines when massed or grouped, serving as a splendid mixed bedding plant or an elegant edging plant along paths and walkways. Pair it with ferns, astilbe, geraniums, hakonechloa, or hostas for a visually captivating garden display.

Cold hardy down to -30┬░F, and delightfully easy to grow, Heuchera 'Carnival Cocomint' thrives in partially sunny to shady locations with average to fertile, medium-moist, well-draining soil, preferably with a slightly alkaline pH. While it adapts well to various soil types, consistent moisture is key, especially in sunnier spots of hotter climates. Although somewhat drought-tolerant once established, maintaining moisture levels ensures optimal growth, particularly in sun-drenched areas where afternoon shade proves beneficial.

Enjoying the luxury of being low maintenance, a layer of mulch in late fall aids in moderating soil temperature and prevents heaving, while deadheading faded flowers encourages a continuous bloom cycle. Come spring, simply remove any dead leaves to rejuvenate the plant. Notably heat-tolerant and deer-resistant, 'Carnival Cocomint' adds a touch of elegance to your landscape while fending off unwanted nibblers.

In conclusion, Heuchera 'Carnival Cocomint' stands as a testament to nature's artistry, combining high-impact colors with heat tolerance and deer resistant. From its early spring blossoms to its year-round foliage, this versatile perennial promises enduring beauty and effortless charm for your garden sanctuary.
