Heuchera 'Southern Comfort' Description

The name says it all - this heuchera was developed to tolerate hot, humid weather and keep its fabulous good looks the whole time. Very large leaves give this plant great presence in the garden, and foliage in an array of orange hues keep it eye-catching all season long.

Plant this heuchera on its own or in multiples to add color to shaded spots. We especially love it with blue hostas or a groundcover of purple mazus.

Soil: Coral bells like well-drained soils that are rich in organic matter.
Light: As a general rule, they do well in shade, but for the brightly colored varieties, some morning sun ensures best color development. The color can wash out in full sun, and too much heat and light can cause the leaves to scorch.
Water: Average -- it's better to err on the side of caution and keep heuchera on the dry, rather than the wet, side. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not consistently wet to prevent root rot. In nature, heuchera are typically found growing between rocks.
Spacing: 2 ft
Fertilizing: spread a layer of compost or rotted manure in early spring. Mulch is a good idea, but keep it from mounding on the crown (center) of the plant. Heuchera does not require fertilization during the fall or winter months.
Winterizing: Winter mulching will prevent the freezing and thawing that can heave plants roots.
Maintenance & pruning: Cut back the entire flower stalk after flowering to put the plants energy into growing more leaves.

WOW!  I just got my plants and they arrived in picture perfect shape.  Your packing system is truly inspired.  Every plant came in still moist and not a bruise on a leaf.  I doubt my local garden centers could provide plants this healthy - assuming they even carried these varieties of Heuchera. I am very impressed and I’ve passed on your name with my highest recommendation to family and friends.  Excellent work to you and your whole crew at Great Garden Plants.  I’ll be back.
