    • I bought 5 of these last year, and all 5 came back beautifully! They grow in mostly full sun, and only a slight crisp to them at times. I just pull the crisp ends out, and does just fine. I only water occasionally if it hasn't rained 4-6 days. I love the silver green color to them. Compliments cool colored plants really well

    • These are beautiful!! I really liked them online and when I saw them in the garden center I decided to buy them. After planting them in the Fall, I love them even more! This Spring they have been beautiful. The variegated foliage is beautiful and the hot pink blooms get noticed! They have been blooming non-stop since late April. I am very impressed! I have them in full sun and was afraid they might suffer, but they have been beautiful!

    • I'm in love. I bought this in a quart size last year and planted it in later summer. This spring it has exploded. It's atleast quadrupled in size and already blooming (before any of the other heucheras) atleast 7 bloom stalks already. It's located in part sun/shade

    • I love heuchera in general. They seem to alway be low maintenance and versatile--sun/shade, zones 9B or 4A, and Dolce® 'Spearmint' Coral Bells Heuchera hybrid did not disappoint. I typically buy heuchera for the foliage and flowers a bonus. These did have a few flower stalks that stayed all summer and the plants grew fast and well. I bought two of them; they both arrived in great shape and transplanted well. These specimens are on the east side of a 3'h picket fence in a semi covered area with bright diffused light. They are great evergreen plants in my California 9B redwood coastal mountain garden (hot dry summers and cold wet windy winters) and are really low maintenance. I'd buy again.

    • I love, love, love this plant! We had our backyard landscaped after a tornado brought down a number of trees in our natural area. It is still very natural but has a circular path and thoughtfully planted native shrubs and trees and there is more sun although it likely qualifies as part sun in the open area and part shade to shade in others. I love that this plant is suitable in all those lighting conditions and the plumes of color in the morning sun is spectacular. We have heavy clay below a shallow layer of clayey loam and I mixed in a lot of Ultra Planting Mix by Farfel and the plants are thriving in our zone 6a area even with higher ph soil than is recommended. Could not be happier with this adaptable plant in my shady garden.
