Description

Heuchera 'Lime Marmalade'. 2-Litre Pot-Grown Plants

What a zinger this heuchera is, with ruffled, bright citrus green foliage that colours up best in light shade. In summer, it sends out shoots of tall-stemmed flowers that contrast beautifully with its leaves and can be useful as cutting flowers.

Growing 'Lime Marmalade' Heucheras

These undemanding plants need a well-drained soil, ideally on the sandy/gritty side, with neutral to mildly acidic pH.
They like some dappled shade at midday: given shelter and moist soil, full sun by itself will do little damage to the foliage, but a combination of full sun, wind and dry soil tends to scorch it.

In mild conditions, heuchera keeps its leaves through winter. Tidy up tired-looking leaves each spring.

In Your Garden Design

This is an excellent variety to cheer up a semi-shaded place with the freshness of its foliage, to contrast with darker-leaved heuchera, or makes a fresh palette with white flowers, such as Geraniums or Nicotiana. A versatile plant celebrated for as being one of the most colourful foliage plants, which works equally well in pots as it does in borders. Treat as an artist would use his palette in whatever space you have, small or large. Pair with Helenium 'short and sassy', Echinacea and Stipa tenuissima.

Cultivation Instructions

Dig in garden compost or leaf mould when planting, in semi-shade. Space 30-40cm apart and water in well. Keep watered until established. Cut down spent stems after flowering. Divide congested clumps in spring and mulch around the crown with organic matter.
