Heuchera (Heuchera Sanguinea Firefly) - Heuchera Firefly, also known as Coral Bells Firefly, has nodding red bell-shaped flowers. Grow this popular perennial from Heuchera seeds, and enjoy its nearly evergreen foliage as well as its blooms. It is a western wildflower that has been bred and improved to give us one of our most popular garden perennials. The bright red flowers are held high on long thin wands over the tidy mounds of scalloped foliage. Coral Bells plants are heavy blooming in well-drained, compost-enriched soil, flowering is prolonged by deadheading of faded flowering spikes. Best in part sun and shade in hot climates, but will do well in full sun at higher altitudes with cooler summer weather. Water regularly for the best show of flowers. 

Many gardeners recommend that Coral Bells seeds be stratified, which means that they must be refrigerated and put through a cold period lasting several weeks. Once the flower seed has been refrigerated for several weeks, it can be sown indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost. Using quality starter mix and starter trays, sow Heuchera seeds into cells, pressing the flower seeds into the soil. Keep Heuchera Sanguinea seed moist. When temperatures are consistently warm outdoors and the danger of frost has passed, young Heuchera seedlings can be hardened off and moved outdoors.
