California’s alumroots are found along the coast or in shady, mountainous settings throughout the state. The majority of the 14 species grow in southern California, with rather limited ranges. Alumroots all form low, expanding patches of round leaves. In spring a tall stalk rises above the leaves with small alternating flowers of pink or white. Plant breeders have invested in this group of plants to optimize certain characteristics for the garden. Most of these efforts involve Heuchera sanguinea, a non-native species from the Southwest with striking red flowers. “Canyon Belle” was developed at Santa Barbara Botanic Garden by Dara Emery as one of four hybrids in the Canyon Quartet series. (The “Canyon” being Mission Canyon where the garden is located). It involves Heuchera sanguinea and the native Heuchera caespitosa. It is favored for its dark green leaves and red flowers. Provide this alumroot with a shady setting and regular summer water.
