From Mt. Cuba Center’s Press Release:

The results are in!

Mt. Cuba Center announces the results of three years of plant trial research in the 2014 Heuchera Research Report.

Heuchera, commonly called coral bells or alum root, are one of the most popular native perennials on the market today.

Research staff evaluated 83 Heuchera cultivars, assessing them for vigor, fullness, and uniformity. They identified top selections for mid-Atlantic gardens. The report is free to the public and can be accessed below.

Congratulations, George Coombs and the Research team at Mt. Cuba Center’s Trial Garden, on a job well done.

Rodney Robinson Landscape Architects led the design of the state-of-the-art Trial Garden at Mt. Cuba Center, completed in 2012. The Heuchera trial is the first to be entirely conducted using the new shade structure.
