Unusual heuchera with honey-apricot foliage and clusters of cream blooms in summer. In spring the foliage unfurls as bright gold darkening to to honey-apricot through the summer. This heuchera looks lovely planted in bold drifts and looks stunning when grown with yellow or red flowering plants. It is semi-evergreen so makes an excellent front of border groundcover plant.
- Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps in early autumn and replant with the crown just above the surface of the soil. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the crown of the plant in spring
