Have you struggled with chartreuse-leaf Heuchera burning in the past? If so, you'll love this new yellow Heuchera. Its best color is in part or filtered shade, where we've been pleased to observe almost no burning, a problem that plagues other varieties. Slightly ruffled, chartreuse leaves are produced on an especially vigorous habit, thanks to its Heuchera villosa heritage. The color will be more lime green in deeper shade. Over time, 'Lemon Love' will gradually spread to about 3 feet wide if given the space. Cream flowers with hints of blush in the calyxes are produced above the foliage in early summer. A great color for brightening up your shade!
This plant is a Heuchera villosa hybrid. The villosa species is a large, late blooming type that exhibits an increased tolerance of high heat and humidity over other species. Most produce cream flowers in midsummer, though they are grown more for their fantastic foliage. H. villosa is native to the southeastern United States.
Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape. Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers. Try cutting a few of the tall flower scapes for fresh bouquets.
