Plant Biography

Heuchera are a group of semi-evergreen herbaceous perennials from the woodlands in North America that have become extremely fashionable in recent years due to an almost chameleon-like ability to breed a range of foliage tints from red, through purple into brown, then orange and into yellow. The colour combinations now possible are seemingly endless!

The genus gets its name from the botanist and medicinal plant expert Johann Heinrich von Heucher (1677-1747).

Heuchera ‘Midnight Rose’ is a semi-evergreen herbaceous perennial forming a neat dome of plum-coloured, angularly-lobed, textured leaves with splodges of pink.

Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

An ideal plant for borders and underplanting larger trees, the Heuchera ‘Midnight Rose’ grows best in moisture-retaining, slightly acidic soils. The fibrous roots makes them suitable for rocky soils and shallow troughs where other plants might struggle.

In harsher winters, the plant may lose its foliage completely but it comes back from underground strong the next spring. Cut back hard in late autumn and mulch to provide a layer of protection. Remove tattered winter foliage in early spring before new leaves emerge.

Plants can be divided every 3-4 years to rejuvenate and encourage new growth.
