Overwintered surprisingly well in last years record-nasty winter. Takes part afternoon sun without complaint. Tough.

This Heuchera never fails to please. It is a tough, sturdy, quickly growing Heuchera. The color is a wonderful warm rich brown with hints of red/orange. It is a rather large plant & returns reliably every year.
