I have this plant growing in 3 different locations. One has morning sun, another has very late afternoon sun and the third is in continuous dappled shade. It over winters well and seems to prosper in all 3 locations.

This heuchera is very attractive because of the variegated foliage. I have divided it already after 2 years of growth and the divided plants came back very well. The pink flowers are just the icing on the cake to me - I just love the leaves.

Now it's in full sun but it burned a bit last summer so it will go to part shade as soon as the rain ends.
