Heuchera 'Rio'


Evergreen, Semi-evergreen Perennial

Palm-shaped, evergreen perennial with coral foliage is a great way to add color at the front of the border; as a specimen in a mixed bed; in a container; or mass multiple plants as a ground cover. Can take full sun in cooler regions but appreciates some shade. Pairs wonderfully with a wide variety of plants; its coral tones look especially handsome contrasted against blue or silver foliage; or try a harmonious scheme by pairing with darker bronze or burgundy foliage.
