Description

Heuchera 'Wild Rose' (Primo Series). 2-Litre Pot-Grown Plants

Although it has small and rather pretty rosy coloured flowers opening from dark buds on tall slender stems, it is the colour of the mound-forming large leaves of this heuchera that really catch the eye here: a bright purple-pink with deep charcoal grey veining. It flowers in summer: dark buds open to a rosy pink.

Growing 'Wild Rose' 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

With such a pop of purple, this is one to show off in a pot or to create a contrast with grasses, geraniums and - put on your sunglasses - Heuchera 'Lime Marmalade'.

The Primo series is made up of larger, more vigorous than average varieties, with ostentatious leaves that fill up a decent amount of space in a border, though they are happy in containers too. Good complementary plant companions are Carex 'Milk Chocolate' and Geranium 'Chocolate Candy'.

Did You Know?

Bred by Hans Hansen, director of new plant development at Walters Gardens in Michigan, from Heuchera villosa, the hairy alumroot (the common name coral bells is mostly applied to H sanguinea).

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.
