No shade garden is complete without heuchera. No longer do you have to rely on annual flowers to give you color in this part of the garden. Heuchera plants have moved beyond green leaves and pink flowers. Garden Crossings has heuchera available with red leaves, chartreuse leaves, salmon-colored leaves, copper-colored leaves, purple leaves, and multicolored leaves.
Heuchera, or coral bells, grow best in full to part shade in well-drained soil. They are quite cold-hardy (most will survive in zones 4-9) Heuchera plants are deer-resistant and attract butterflies and hummingbirds. What's not to love?
