I was really blown away with the great colors and color combinations of the heuchera at one display at Chelsea -- oranges, pinks, chartreuse, gold, purples, forest green, maroon -- in variegated, solid, shaded, splattered -- matte or gloss finish. Even the little white/light-colored blooms add a light splash of color that Monet liked in his gardens at Giverny -- his “shimmery” small-flowering white flowers -- used to make other colors “pop.”
I have a raised bed area to which I want to add a fountain. Then, I'm going to add colorful heuchera all around it. Why plant ephemeral flowers when heuchera provides as much color and never fades, even into the fall?
