Has anybody had good luck with Midnight rose?

Last summer I bought three midnight rose coral bells plants because I thought they were so pretty. I planted them in part shade, even though I know coral bells really are not the shade plants that they are often advertised as.

Of course none of them came back this year. I just saw some on sale and had to controlled the impulse to buy them again.

But I wondered if anyone has had good luck with them.

I have grown this heuchera successfully in a container with some other stuff, and it has done great. It overerwintered in the pot last year, and I plan on combining it with pansies for this winter too.

I bought one at Lowes last summer on sale for something like $6, and it's doing fine, in a well-watered bed that gets a few hours of morning sun.
