Description

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

Chunks of marmalade loveliness bring the best of the autumn palette to the border year round: golds, peachy pinks, rusty oranges, all jumbled together over the richly textured leaves. When in flower in late spring or autumn, it shoots up long stems with small white blooms at the top that can provide excellent contrast to other plants or be used in cut flower arrangement. A border must have, particularly in winter.

Growing '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 keep their leaves through winter. Tidy tired-looking leaves each spring.

In Your Garden Design

Bridging the gap between the darker-leaved Heucheras and the bright green of 'Lime Marmalade', Marmalade's autumnal tones will add interest to the front of a border or look good lining a path.

It provides wonderful ground cover teamed up with Cyclamen coum and Cyclamen hederifolium, and hellebores. Planted alongside Snowdrops and Narcissi, it can make a particularly effective display in winter. Team up in groups, or use with other heuchera varieties, and you are onto a winning combination.

Did You Know?

Originating from the woodlands of North America, the common names for the wild parents of cultivated Heucheras are alumroot and coral bells.

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.
