I planted six of these last fall. I chose them for their beautiful foliage coloring and the very large size of the leaves and the plant in general. They went through a real Minnesota winter very well. They are on a well-traveled corner and I get a lot of comments about them. This is a great selection if you like coral bells at all (and I do!).

This has to be just about the most vigorous of Heucheras. It is also one of the largest Heucheras. It needs to be divided about every 3 years. The roots are very long and thick for a Heuchera. It will grow very well in total shade. It is a very fast growing Heuchera.
