If you like the yellow-leaf coral bells but they haven't proven to be heat-tolerant in your climate, your solution is here. From France's Thierry Delabroye comes Heuchera 'Citronelle', a gold leaf mutation from his wonderful Heuchera villosa hybrid, Heuchera 'Caramel'. Like its parent, Heuchera 'Citronelle' makes a 1' tall x 18" wide clump of golden foliage, topped in summer with tall spikes of small white flowers. Heuchera 'Citronelle' doesn't seem to enjoy full sun like most of its siblings...must be a blonde thing.
