Heuchera 'Carnival Cocomint'

Heuchera ‘Carnival Cocomint’

A mound of leaves in rich greens, lime green around the edges, burgundy veins in the middle of a pale leaf interior. The darker colors may be a result of our plant being in deeper shade than how most people describe it. Produces sprays of white flowers in late spring.

Heuchera is native to North America.

Cultivation Notes

All the literature says that Heuchera contain a substance that deer and rabbit do not like. Tell that to our deer. I have almost given up trying to grow them because they are a favorite here.

Propagation Notes

Heuchera are short-lived unless they are divided every 3-4 years as the crown becomes woody.
