I planted about 9 Heuchera Rave On about 2 years ago and could not believe the flower power! It kept blooming from early summer well into fall and got to enjoy the hummingbirds all summer! Flowers are beautiful and so is the foliage. I've never lost any plants over the winter. Rave On has never "heaved" on me (as is the case with a number of varieties). I have it planted on a slight slope where it gets a lot of sun and is never the worse for wear even late in the season. Hope to get around to planting more as an edging plant along a walkway

Beautiful garden plant. very hardy. The flowers are so delicate, growing along many spikes. Mine are planted in a raised bed with shade and filtered sun. At times the bed is dry, but these guys are very hardy and seem to withstand the dry conditions until they are watered. I love them and my garden wouldn't be complete without them.

Wow, this is an amazing Heuchera! Spectacular flower show. Vigorous. Sun tolerant. Fabulous soft rose leaves with a frosty silver overlay. It is the perfect mix of the classic showy Coral Bell bloom and the spectacular foliage of modern Heuchera hybrids. Mine is on its third year and I'm excited for this year's bloom. Last year I often got comments like "Oh my gosh, what is that?" or "I've never seen a Heuchera like that!"

I have mine planted at the edge of the canopy of a large Maple tree. It gets full sun until about noon and shade after that. I have never amended the soil or added fertilizer. The soil is decent but not very high in organic content. I have Ajuga 'Chocolate Chip', and Saxifraga x arendsii 'Triumph' in front and some Columbine and Petasites japonica var. giganteus behind. These seem to be the perfect companions to show off both the leaves and the flowers.
