This is a beautiful plant! Easy to grow in my zone 8b. I've had heuchera "Prince" in a container on my porch for a year now. It gets 6 - 8 hours of sun and has had no mulch or other weather protection. It withstands our hot Mississippi coast summer and the 2009 winter (when it snowed twice) Truely an eye catcher in front of a container of Pink Muhly Grass!
