Heuchera 'Electric Lime'
Heat & humidity tolerant!
Heuchera 'Electric Lime' is the big sister to coral bells 'Electra'. This beauty forms a tight mound of lime foliage, with cooler temps bringing out pinkish-red veining. A hybrid of the villosa x americana strains, this work horse is tough down south where it is resistant to heat and humidity. It has been suggested that this beauty grows best in full shade but we have found that it grows nicely here in the north in a mostly sunny location. Southern gardeners are better advised to keep this one in the shade. A 2010 introduction from Terra Nova. PP#21872.
This plant is a Heuchera villosa hybrid. The villosa species is a robust grower with an increased tolerance of high heat and humidity over other species. Most villosas produce flowers in midsummer, though they are usually grown more for their fantastic foliage. H. villosa is native to the southeastern United States. If you live in the south this plant is a great choice for your garden!
