Coral Bells/ Today's Flowers

Heuchera sanguinea (also known as coral bells)

Tiny long-lasting bells that bloom all summer when the spent blossoms are cut.


These lovely blossoms attract butterflies, hummingbirds and...ME!

Super super close-up, EG. It could be an illustration for a special plant book.
I have some Heuchera blooming and will go check the flower more closely. Well when the rain stops--oh well it will never stop and I won't melt--I'll go as soon as it gets light out. MB

Wonderful macro shot. I like to plant flowers and berry bushes for the birds.

The first photo is pure joy. The pink colour is so pretty.

They look so delicate but seem hardy from your description of a long blooming season.
