Your lovely photo makes me even sadder than usual that coral bells do not like my drought-prone hilltop!

Thank you, Carol. I, too, have a sandy hill top bench, where the winds dry everything so quickly. I have this Heuchera Blackcurrant tucked into a bed on the north side of my house in a slightly more protected zone. I'm afraid that Heuchera Key Lime Pie and Heuchera Miracle have not done so well.

I would never have guessed that you too live on a windy hilltop! Hurray! I haven't tried a location on the north side of my house. Perhaps there is still hope for coral bells here after all.
