Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

An ideal plant for borders and underplanting larger trees, the Heuchera villosa grows best in moisture retaining, slightly acidic soils. The fibrous roots makes them suitable for rocky soils and shallow throughs 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.

Expert Tip

This is a shade tolerant heuchera that may be grown in rock gardens, borders, open woodland gardens, rocky slopes or native plant areas. It is best planted in groups or massed. For an interesting foliage contrast, it can be paired with other varieties of Heuchera or Carex grasses.
