Heuchera

  • Heuchera 'Vienna' in July

(Under construction)
In terms of ornamental attributes, usefulness, versatility, and maintenance I would consider Heucheras as one of the most valuable perennials in our garden; yes I am bias. Heuchera has an interesting and wide colour range, a compact neat habit, beautiful textures, and is semi-evergreen. The spikes of tinny heuchera flowers are useful for creating a feel of elegant and airy space in the flower beds or along a path. Depending on the varieties, it can be grown in full sun to almost full shade. They maintain a presentable look from early spring into snow fall. Like most popular plants in the market place, many of the Heuchera varieties are not really distinguishable from each other in terms of ornamental characteristics. For these, I generally group the similar one together and use them in the garden as singular ornamental entities.

As far as practicable, I tried to give each Heuchera a maximum amount of light the particular variety can take but not more (for good colours and health). The mature size and vigor vary widely for different varieties of Heuchera. There are insufficient information in books or reliable information on the internet to help me on these. So the only practical solution is by trials and errors myself.
