Heuchera's flowers are not showy, but they are extensive, on thin stems, varying in color - white, pink, red. The heuchera I grow have green and purple-edged foliage and tiny, airy-white flowers. In summer, I pinch back the spent flowers to encourage a fall bloom.
Thriving in shade to full sun, this perennial prefers moist and well-drained soil. Fertilize occasionally with Miracle Gro. In a prolonged drought, water heuchera one inch. once a week. Mulch around the plants in the fall and divide the plants every few years to keep it happy and robust. This plant has shallow crowns. Mulching helps to keep the plants from heaving in the winter. Relatively disease and pest free, heuchera is an easy-breezy addition to any zone 5 perennial or garden bed.
