Heuchera ‘Huntsman’

A really good Heuchera that works well in the garden and not just containers. Maple shaped leaves are bronze with a darker central zone forming a mound 1′ x 1′. From April to August a continuous parade of clouds of pink flowers held up to 28″ wiry stems. The display begins with an initial huge showing  and then sporadic flowers until August. Removing spent flowers will ensure re-bloom. Very pretty and creates an ethereal effect of clouds of pink.  Evergreen to semi-evergreen for rich well drained soil that retains moisture. Regular summer water. Better bloom in full sun though tolerant of part shade. Long lived carefree perennial. Add compost or all organic fertilizer on tired plants, they will respond almost immediately. This is an English selection that we love. Wonderful planted en masse. VERY difficult to photograph the flowers. Excellent perennial.
