Description Plant Care
 
Heuchera micrantha 'Palace Purple' (Palace Purple Coral Bells). 1991 PPA Perennial Plant of the Year! Clump-forming perennial features a mound of maple, or ivy-like, long-petioled leaves (3-5" wide) which are an attractive deep purple above and beet red beneath. Foliage color may fade to a bronze green in hot summers. Tiny, pinkish white, bell-shaped flowers in open, airy panicles are borne on slender, wiry, dark red stems extending well above the mound of leaves typically to a height of 15-24" in late spring to early summer. Reliable perennial valued for its winter presence and summer contrast. Like many heucheras it is good for half shade in a woodland edge position, but in moist soil and cloudy climates it tolerates an open position in full sun. Not drought tolerate, unless plenty of humus is added to the soil. Remove stems of faded flower panicles to encourage continued bloom (bloom is more apt to repeat in cool summer climates than hot ones). In cold winter climates, a winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving (clumps are shallow-rooted and will develop woody bases rather quickly). Divide clumps in spring every 3-4 years. Attracts hummingbirds to the garden! Both flowers and leaves are popular with flower arrangers for cutting, while in the garden they associate well with other compact plants as their foliage makes a good foil for both bright colours and pastels. They look especially good used around the edge of a border.
Special Characteristics:
  • Birds and Butterflies
  • Salt Tolerant

What is a Liner Tray?

Our liner trays are a 10" x 20" tray with multiple plant cells that vary in depth depending on the cell size.

In general, 'Liner' is a term used to describe a smaller starter plant that will usually be re-potted into a larger container for finishing. In some applications, they may be used for massed planting when cost becomes a bigger factor.
Our liners are targeted for the horticultural industry. They are most suitable for greenhouse growers, nurseries, farmer's markets, and landscapers. They are also suitable for potting up pre-season and finishing into a larger plant prior to planting in the landscape.

Liners planted directly into the landscape would require additional care due to the smaller root size. We do NOT guarantee the success of direct planting into the landscape using liner trays. There are times, however, when planting en masse, that liners may be a viable cost alternative due to the number of plants required. In this case, some losses might be acceptable for the planting volume.

Note: If installing massed plantings, see our space calculator to figure out how many plants might be needed.

Our liner sizes range from 21 cells to 72 cells per tray. The larger 21 cells are more suitable for direct landscape planting, while the other cell sizes would need to be grown on and finished in a larger container prior to planting.

The cell sizes are as follows:
72 cell = 2 1/4" deep
50 cell = 2 1/4" deep
38 cell = 3" deep
21 cell = 3 3/4" deep
