Heuchera 'Smoke and Mirrors' is another top-tier coral bell hybrid for its ability to thrive in our hot, humid summers. This 2019 Walters Gardens introduction forms a 10" tall x 20" wide clump of silver leaves, highlighted by olive veins and flushed with a purple overlay. We have ours planted where they receive several hours of direct sun including during the heat of the afternoon. Clumps of Heuchera 'Smoke and Mirrors' are topped with tremendous floral show of pink flowers in mid-spring.


Heuchera 'Smoke and Mirrors' is a relatively maintenance free perennial. After flowering is finished, we like to cut back the old flower stalks, for a tidier appearance, but it has not effect on the growth of the plant.

Heucheras by nature are short-lived perennials, with a life expectancy of 5-7 years. When plants begin to decline, they can be lifted, divided, and reset, to start the clock ticking again. We have had the best success doing this in fall, but most likely other seasons will work as well.

Growing Conditions:

Good drainage is the key to growing heuchera successfully. Good drainage does not mean the plants cannot tolerate irrigation or rainfall, just that the moisture must drain away quickly. Light shade to a couple of hours of early morning sun works best. Deep shade is not conducive to growing good coral bells.

Garden Value:

Heuchera 'Smoke and Mirrors' is prized for its attractive vertical stalks of ruby red flowers as well as its silvery evergreen foliage, which adds winter interest to the woodland gardens.

Natural Impacts:

Bees and to a lesser extent hummingbirds are the main pollinators that you're likely to see on your Smoke and Mirrors Coral Bells.
