Heuchera ‘Cherry Cola’ is a compact variety of Heuchera, also called Fancy-leaf Coral Bells and Alum root ‘Cherry Cola’. It is a clump-forming, herbaceous, perennial. It is a fast grower with beautiful reddish-brown leaves and red flowers. Frankly, the leaves are so colorful you don’t need the flowers to complement the landscape. It grows to about 15in or about 40cm high and produces flowers in late spring and summer. You may plant it in the sun but preferably partial shade in fertile, well-drained soil. Heuchera ‘Cherry Cola’ can also do alright in full shade. It likes moistness so water deeply, but not in the dormant seasons. You can feed it in the growing season. Heuchera ‘Cherry Cola’ is part of the Saxifragaceae family of plants. Cut back the dead flowers in spring, and protect it from the cold in the winter. Propagate by division in autumn.
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
