All of the Heuchera we are offering
are all bred from our native Heuchera villosa. Ones bred from
this native are superior garden plants. They are very easy to
grow here in Pennsylvania as they are much more tolerant of
heat and humidity that other Heuchera. Commonly called Hairy
Alumroot, these villosa hybrids can usually be identified by
their larger, somewhat hairy leaves. These vigorous growers
provide a dramatic splash of color to the garden. They bloom
in late summer after other Heuchera are finished blooming.
All Heuchera grow well in a partly shady location. While they usually prefer some protection from afternoon sun,
many of these villosa hybrids are more sun tolerant than other
varieties. Good drainage is essential to grow Heuchera well. The
care of Heuchera is very simple. The plants are basically
evergreen. Remove the flower stalks after flowering. Cut
flower stems all the way to the base of the plant. Remove any dead
foliage in the fall and again in the spring.
