Paris is beautiful, charismatic, and unique. Many of us associate it with love and romance, and when we plan a trip there we feel entitled to receive an experience of something extraordinarily beautiful. Looking at her invention, American plant breeder Janet N. Egger from the Terra Nova® Nurseries probably didn't take too long to decide to name her new coral bells variety after this French capital. This variety is worth every compliment, just like Paris, and is surely hard not to fall in love with. Again, just like Paris. US patent No. PP18881 was granted in 2008.

Paris coral bells belongs among the most profuse flowering heucheras ever. It is an interspecific hybrid with the blood of H. sanguinea, H. micrantha, H. americana and H. cylindrica. Its medium green leaves are conspicuously marbled silvery grey and form a neat and dense mound. As early as in late May rise relatively short, about 35 cm tall, dark maroon stems topped with loose thyrsus (upright raceme) composed of coral red flowers. Each flowering stem lasts for almost a month while other stems are tirelessly produced until autumn.

Foliage is kept most of the year during mild winters of USDA zone 6. To have it as beautiful as possible we recommend regular removing of stems with spent flowers or cutting the whole plant back just above the ground level in early July – after the main flowering phase – and feeding it abundantly every week with liquid fertilizers for ornamental or flowering plants.

Coral bells can take almost any soil with ample moisture and good drainage. They do best in partial shade or filtered sun, however, if you make sure they will not dry out you can place them in full sun, too. They can also live in dark shade where their colours will not be too rich, such location is usually best for light coloured varieties. Cut off all leaves in early spring to encourage growth of new foliage. Fully hardy to abt. -40 °C (USDA zone 3), and suitable for outdoor pots.

  • STANDARD QUALITY - Plants of this group are 1st class quality with number of branches and overall density adequate to their size and age, considering they were container grown.
  • DE LUXE QUALITY - This label guarantees a luxurious quality of manually selected plants that, compared to their height and age, are exceptionally dense and beautiful.
  • EXTRA - These plants are usually mature and bigger specimens with exceptional overall appearance.
  • STANDARD (as described in the plant form) means a tree with a trunk of 190-210 cm and a crown at the top, unless specified differently. The commercial size for trees is their girth measured in the height of 1m from ground.
  • HOBBY - These plants are of the same quality as our standard-quality plants but younger and therefore cheaper.
  • SHRUB - a woody plant with branches growing bushy from the ground level.
  • HALF-STANDARD or MINI-STANDARD - a small tree with shorter trunk, its size is usually specified.
  • FEATHERED - These are trees with branches growing already from the base of the trunk and up along the stem.
  • GRASSES and PERENNIALS - Sizes given usually read the diameter of the pot or the clump, as specified.
