Heuchera 'Wendy' / Wendy Alum Root

×

Synonym Names:

Family: Saxifragaceae

Location:

Heuchera 'Wendy' belongs to the group of large leaf (H. maxima), native, Heuchera hybrids that prefer, dry, shady conditions. They thrive under native oak trees or in similar situations. Once established, they require virtually no care other than removal of the dead flowers after bloom in the spring. They are most effectively shown when planted in mass. This perennial can reach 2' tall and wide. Evergreen leaves are large, rounded and light green. This perennial has clumping rosettes. Tiny pink flowers on thin wiry stalks above foliage are very attractive. This plant tolerates clay soil but does best in well draining soil. Established plants are drought tolerant. Not a long lived plant but well worth the effort. Can be planted near the coast. Hummingbirds love this plant.  Information by: GardenSoft
