My first introduction to Heuchera Leaves in floral design work came from Francoise Weeks and Janet of Floral Verde . Both ladies use these leaves in their design work and shared with me how sturdy and long lasting they are, plus the wide variety of colors they come in.
Turns out this is a great plant to add into flower beds as it is an evergreen perennial which forms a mound of delicious color. Mostly they like to be in the shade and I have found they do ok in my flower bed which gets afternoon sun as long as I have a taller plant giving them some shade. This versatile perennial is reliably hardy in zones 4-9.
You may also know them by their other name ‘Coral Bells’
Here is an example of Floral Verde’s design work where Heuchera Leaves add a beautiful color and texture:
From what my research has shown there looks to be well over a 100 varieties of Heuchera and new colors and leaf variations coming out all the time!
Here I am sharing a few of my favorites which are currently growing in my cutting garden:
