"I want something easy to grow, low maintenance, shade loving AND has color all season!"
We get this question a lot. Fortunately, there is an easy answer and that is Heuchera! Heucheras will give you that plus more! Easy to grow, Heucheras grow in sand or clay, alkaline or acid soil and are salt tolerant!
Heucheras form attractive mounds with an average spread of 12-18", making them ideal for edging beneath taller shrubs, used as a groundcover or placed in front of the perennial border. They do a wonderful job in coaxing collaboration of colors from other plants. Once you've tried them you'll soon become a fan of this easy to grow shade perennial - you won't be able to stop with just one.
Heuchera more than any other perennial, offer an artist's palette of amazing foliage colors ranging from silvers, green, black, pewter, peach, copper, bronze and various hues in between. Combine that with foliage size, texture, colorful veins and hummingbird-loving blooms you are well in your way to 3+ seasons of interest with easy to grow Coral Bells.
Here is what we really love about Coral Bells - they wear well like a pair of Blue Denim. The updated and improved Heucheras don't really tire as other perennials do toward the end of the season. Supercharged with varying color hues that continue to change through the season, Heuchera is a dependable shade perennial that returns reliably year after year (even in containers) Both pest & disease resistant, Heucheras are the ideal choice for a partial shaded site.
In addition to foliage, some fantastic flowering Heucheras such as Rave On or the new re-blooming variety called Havana are stunning!

How to Grow the Best Heuchera
Heucheras grow well in Zone 4-9. Heucheras are adaptable to a wide range of soils types form alkaline to acid and sand to clay. Grow Heuchera in a humus rich moist well drained soil. They detest being waterlogged.
Heucheras are best if protected from the hot afternoon sun. They like some morning sun which brings out the intensity of their foliage color. In complete shade, their color will appear dull.
To keep Heucheras looking their best, remove tatty-looking foliage and spent flower spikes.
