Midnight leaves with flashes of purple and hints of green. This dramatic beauty is sure to be a fast favourite. Easy to use contrast for gardens or containers.
Not just a pretty face, this Heuchera has excellent vigour and a big, mounding form. The beautifully lustrous, ruffled leaves add a gorgeous texture wherever they are grown and upright stems of soft pink bells are held high above the leaves in summer.
A stand out in pots, or mass planted in beds, they are simple to grow and care for, quickly growing into a healthy clump. They are evergreen in all but the coldest areas.
Plant in a filtered light position out of the hot afternoon sun. They can take more sun in cooler zones and the darker varieties tend to fare better in more sun. A moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil is ideal, they don’t like it boggy. Water to establish, it takes around four weeks for the roots to penetrate the surrounding soil and gain access to its moisture and nutrients, until then, like all new plants, they will need extra care. Remove spent flowers and foliage to tidy as required, before the new spring growth is ideal. They aren’t heavy feeders so if you have a good soil you won’t need to worry about fertiliser, if your soil is poor a light sprinkle in spring is all you’ll need.
In pots, ensure you container choice has sufficient drainage holes. Use a good quality potting mix and remember to water, especially over summer, where on hot days you may need to care for them daily.
