Why Plant Heuchera?

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.
