Heuchera 'Citronelle' has attractive foliage that extends the season of interest in the garden. The decorative lemon-yellow foliage pairs nicely with darker foliage. Creamy, bell-shaped flowers bloom on tall spikes in the summer. This is an excellent plant that mixes well into containers and is also deer resistant. A sport of Heuchera 'Caramel', its parentage includes H. villosa, native to southeast U.S., meaning it tolerates heat and humidity better than many types.
Uses: Beds, Borders, Containers, Edging, Landscapes, Woodland Garden

Homeowner Growing Tips: Coral Bells prefer moist, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. Amend with compost before planting. They will take sun or partial shade, though afternoon shade is required in hot regions to prevent leaf scorch. In cold climates, mulch well, after the ground freezes. If the plants heave due to frost, carefully press back into place in spring. Heucheras generally need to be divided and replanted every 3 years, burying the woody rootstock and keeping the crowns above the soil surface.
