Heuchera make excellent foliage plants for sun to partial shade gardens. Most flowers are not as impressive as the foliage, but they do add a second level of interest.
Noteworthy CharacteristicsClumps or mounds of heart-shaped, boldy veined leaves. Some cultivars have bold dark, or radiant silvery, foliage. The flowers are borne in narrow racemes or panicles and form in late spring and early summer.
CareGrow in fertile, well-drained soil in sun to partial shade. The rootstalk tends to grow upwards, so mulch annually to keep covered. You may need to lift and replant with the crown just above the soil.
PropagationSow seed in containers in spring. Divide in autumn.
ProblemsFoliar nematodes, rust, powdery mildew, and leaf spots
