Dolce Mocha Mint has a very long bloom period in my garden. I didn't deadheaded it and it still sent out lots of flowers stalks over many months.

Thus far, I give this plant a positive rating. It has maintained it's colour and form the entire season without becoming raggedy as some heuchs do. Shortly after planting Mocha Mint, it sent up 5 panicles full of pink flowers. As soon as the flower panicles faded, I removed them and about a month later I had a whole new bunch of flowers again.
I really do believe that the Dolce series Heucheras are good performers in the garden

Mocha Mint is situated in a north-west position in my garden and receives dappled sunlight from about 5 o'clock onwards. My amended clay soil has a ph of 6.5.
