Heuchera are grown predominantly for their leaf colour but produce slender stems of flowers in the summer that are attractive to butterflies. This easy to grow perennial is tolerant of many different growing conditions including full sun, shade, drought and seaside locations. Grow in any fertile, well drained soil. Evergreen in mild winters but tidy damaged leaves in the spring and divide clumps every 3-4 years to encourage vibrant young growth. Good resistance to damage by deer and rabbits. Be careful not to bury the crowns when planting.
Bright, fiery peachy-orange leaves that glow in the spring and autumn, softening to a rich peach in the summer and then turning a purple plum in the winter make this Heuchera a terrific choice for adding a touch of colour towards the front of a shady border. This easy to grow, vigorous medium sized plant won a first place award at the Royal Dutch Flower Bulb Association show in 2008. Creamy-white flowers on slender wiry stems open in airy panicles in late spring and early summer. Its low mounding habit makes it ideal for use as edging along paths or in containers. As with all Heucheras, be careful not to bury the crown when planting. Evergreen in mild winters, its colour is strongest when grown in partial shade but it will tolerate full shade. Good resistance to rabbit and deer damage. Height 7ins (18cm) Spread 14ins (36cm) Flower Height 16ins (40cms)
