Love this Heuchera. I have been growing it since 2000 and divided the original plant many times. As I write this on May 11 2009, my many clumps of it are sending up stems of buds soon to begin opening. They will last into August. Hummingbirds love it!

This is my favorite heuchera, and I grow many. The foliage color is outstanding, and the flower color is even better - darker red than any of the others I have. it does well and blooms profusely over a long period in both sun and shade.

I really love this heuchera. Foliage is oustanding; flowers in greater abundance than others I've grown, over a longer period, and in a striking cherry red color. Seems to need more sun than other heucheras in my garden.
