Product Description

Heuchera sanguinea splendens

 

 

500 Seeds|

 

Bright red flowers are held high on long thin wands over the tidy mounds of scalloped foliage. Coral Bells plants are heavy blooming in well-drained, compost enriched soil, flowering is prolonged by deadheading of faded flowering spikes. Best in part sun and shade in hot climates, but will do well in full sun at higher altitudes with cooler summer weather. Water regularly for the best show of flowers.Many gardeners recommend that Coral Bells seeds be stratified, which means that they must be refrigerated and put through a cold period lasting several weeks. Once the flower seed has been refrigerated for several weeks, it can be sown indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost. Using quality starter mix and starter trays, Grow this popular perennial from Heuchera seeds, and enjoy its nearly evergreen foliage as well as its blooms. It is a western wildflower that has been bred and improved to give us one of our most popular garden perennials.

 USDA Zone 3-9.

 

 How to Grow Heuchera-Coral Bells From Seeds

 

 

  • Seeds, however, require at least a six-week cold period prior to planting.

  • An ideal growing medium for heuchera seeds is an equal amount of a good seed starter mix and vermiculite or perlite.

  • Moisten the soil mix until it is damp but not wet. Heucheras will not thrive in a heavy, wet growing medium.

  • For best results, press into soil but do not cover. Heuchera seeds need light to germinate, so all you need to do is to spray the surface lightly with water. Keep at 65-70° F

  • Each little seed pod has a TON of seeds, so be careful and don’t overplant… you do not want to end up with thousands of little seedlings.

  • Put seed trays under plastic domes, and keep close under lights. Mist occasionally to keep surface moist.. Don’t let the germinating seeds and soil dry out… if necessary, mist occasionally to keep the surface moist.

  • Expect germination in 21-30 days.

  • As soon as the seedlings appear, remove the plastic bag and start watering the trays from the bottom.

  • Heuchera seedlings develop a long center root at a very young age, so they should be transplanted for the first time as soon as the seedlings have grown a second set of leaves.

  • As the seedlings grow, transplant them to larger containers as you would with any other seedling. 

  • Heavy soils are death to heuchera seedlings at any stage.

  •  It is recommend that a Winter mulch be used for Heuchera (Coral Bells) for the coldest parts of their growing zones.

  • Plant outdoors after a week or so of "hardening off" on your deck or patio. They get fairly bushy the first year, but really take off their second year.

  • Collect Coral bells seeds after blooming is completed. Allow the seed pods--located at the base of the blossoms--to dry on the plant, and then remove them and collect the seeds.

  • Cold-stratify the seeds by placing them in a brown paper bag with moist vermiculite and storing them in the refrigerator for 6 weeks, a process that ensures more effective germination. Fertilize the seedlings a week after transplanting with a water-soluble, all-purpose fertilizer, and repeat every four months in the growing season. Keep watered and weeded for the rest of the summer. If your coral bells don't bloom the first year, they probably will by the second.
