Heucheras ideal in shade
Heuchera: As a general rule, the lighter the foliage the less sun it needs.
Every now and then
there's a certain plant
that breeders take a
fancy to -- like the
ground covering heuchera, aka
coral bells, a North American
native that's grown
predominantly for its foliage.
One happy trait that heucheras
possess is that they can be
grown in shade. Mass-planted in
a shady corner, they fairly pop
with colour, and as these plants
are evergreen, the colour
Some varieties grow in sun as
well. As a general rule, the
lighter the foliage the less sun
Recently we saw Heuchera
Black Beauty, Mint Julep and
Autumn Leaves hit the garden
Heuchera Black Beauty has
deep plum-red, almost black
foliage and from late spring
until early summer it throws up
tall stems with tiny cream
flowers that contrast fabulously
with its foliage.
Heuchera Mint Julep and
Heuchera Autumn Leaves are
both horticultural chameleons,
changing colours in response to
The former has lemon-lime
minty green foliage with a
frosty silver tinge in spring. In
autumn and winter it develops
nice red veining.
The latter has deep fiery red
foliage in spring, taupe foliage
in summer, and dark ruby red
foliage in autumn. Then there
are the heucherellas, a cross
between a variety of heuchera
and a variety of tiarella.
They too have caught the
breeders' attention, having the
hardiness and vigorous growth
of tiarellas, with the extended
range of colours and leaf shapes
Like the newer varieties of
heucheras, heucherellas are
bred to tolerate heat and
Two heucherellas recently
introduced are Solar Eclipse
and Sunrise Falls. Solar Eclipse
forms a vigorous mound of
evergreen leaves in striking red
During the winter months the
red brown colour fills out the
centre of the leaf so that the
lime-green colour becomes a
border. Small white flowers on
tall stems appear in spring.
Sunrise Falls is distinctly
different in that it is a trailing
heucherella, with large yellow
maple-shaped leaves and red
veins. This makes it ideal for
hanging baskets or it can be
used as a vigorous ground
cover. Both are available from
Heucheras and heucherellas
like a moist but free-draining
soil. If overwatered or allowed
to sit in soggy soil, plants are
likely to rot. Likewise, if planted
too deeply their crowns may rot.
Divide every three years or so to
prevent them becoming woody
and to increase vigour.
