Coral Bells are native Spirits that grow all over North America in different forms. Until the 1990s, gardeners considered them nice garden plants, but nothing too spectacular. Then breeders began to make crosses, and exciting new Coral Bells in brilliant colors began to appear. Guacamole's life began in France, where Sandrine and Thierry Delabroye collected Heuchera seeds and produced many unusual and new varieties of Coral Bells. In 2014, the first Guacamole seedling was discovered by Thierry and propagated to study its reliability and performance. Once it was determined to be as beautiful and hardy as they hoped, it was patented in 2017, and the new seedling was given its fitting name of 'Guacamole.'

How To Water
Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water slowly and thoroughly. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late year. Continue this for three years to get your plant well established.
How To Prune
Each fall, just before winter sets in clean up the previous years foliage and compost it. Be sure your perennials are mulched well for winter protection. Two inches of an organic mulch will do the job. Consider leaving the plant debris in place through the winter and doing your clean up on the weather warms in the spring. While it doesn't make things neat and tidy, the debris provides overwintering protection for insects, their eggs and pupae including our native Viceroy butterfly.
