2. Coral Bells

Coral Bells, also known as Alum Root or by the family name Heuchera, are amazingly versatile plants. They can thrive in any amount of sun, from full sun to full shade, a feat matched by an incredibly small number of plants.

These unique plants actually come in a wide variety of shades from bright lime green to dark red, rich ochres, and near-black purples. These perennials send up spikes of flowers in the late summer, which contrasts beautifully with the rich leaves — another hardy, easy choice.
