(Alumroot, Canyon Melody Alumroot)
Originally developed by Dana Emery at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, Canyon Series alumroot was especially bred for compact habit and profuse blooms in all its cultivars. Although quietly attractive in their own right, the diminutive mounds of glossy, green foliage take second stage to the abundance of tiny, tubular, brightly-colored flowers which decorate the plants in late spring.
Alumroots in the Canyon Series need reasonably moist, fertile, well-drained soil and a site receiving partial...

(Alumroot, Marmalade Alumroot)
Full sun tough with incredibly hot color foliage, this small hardy perennial offers exciting looks all year long. It is one of the new cultivars of the old plant known as coral bells, which was grown primarily for its flowers. But contemporary breeding of American native Heuchera species has yielded a whole new generation of cultivars created exclusively for their colored leaves. This small clumping perennial is a perfect example, producing fancy ruffled leaves that feature brownish orange...

Heuchera ‘Bressingham Hybrids’ offer low, rounded mounds of marbled, silver and mint-green foliage which remain fresh and attractive throughout spring, summer and fall. Airy wands of tiny, tubular flowers in shades of red, pink and white appear in profusion from late spring through midsummer.
