We're getting to the saturation point for new Heuchera colors, but 'Georgia Peach' is just so cheerful, I had to share it with you. A lot of the burgundy, purple leaves coral bells get lost in a shady garden, but 'Georgia Peach' has enough glow to catch your eye.

It seems silly to keep calling Heuchera 'Coral Bells', since most of them don't have coral flowers anymore. Sadly, the color of the flowers seems to be an after thought with new introductions and they often clash with the color of the foliage. Coral Bells became foliage plants way back with the insipid pink flowers of 'Palace Purple'. So 'Georgia Peach', with its white sprays of flowers, is something of a throwback. Flowers that don't interfere with the beauty of the plant.
