This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.
- Position: full sun or partial shade
- Soil: fertile, moist or well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Large, lobed and slightly ruffled leaves appear pinkish in spring before turning a bright orange shade. Attractively veined, lobed leaves change from pink-flushed orange to burgundy as the seasons change. This variety can take a while to bulk up and is not a bushy variety until its a few years old.
- Garden care: Heucheras do not like dry soil. Remove tatty foliage in autumn. Lift and divide clumps every couple of years in early autumn and replant with the crown just above the surface of the soil. Apply a generous 5-7 cm (2-3 in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the crown of the plant in spring.
