Was at first put off by the Terra Nova card, which said it needed "perfect" drainage, but couldn't resist, and now must report that it is the best performing heuchera in my garden. Gorgeous from spring thru fall and, in my experience anyway (raised bed, morning/early aft. sun ) extremely robust in its flowering and its substantial, beautiful mounds of foliage.

Very pretty foliage, but a little bit on the wimpy side in the hurly-burly of my borders.
