Seems to be the strongest chartreuse/yellow huechera here in a sunny, hot, very dry environment. Gets additional water but most still die off in a year; this really did look good all year.
- Part Shade to Shade
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
This plant is hardy in zones 4 - 9
Zones are based on the lowest average temperature an area is expected to receive during the winter. They are used to determine whether a plant is likely to be perennial in your area. If your zone is equal to or higher than the zone listed for the plant, it will be hardy for you and thrive in your climate.

Plant alone or in combinations in all container types and landscapesMaintenance Notes:
They begin blooming in early spring. Deadheading won't keep them blooming longer. However, removing the flower stems once the plant has finished blooming will keep them looking tidier. Plants can be divided in spring or fall for personal use.
An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
We've launched a PR campaign - Dolce Heucheras: The Other flowering plant for part to full shade that starts with H. Dolce are the aristocrats of Heucheras (coral bells). As the Spokes-Heuchera, I say we start with me. My mounded, 8-16 inch clumps of scalloped, heart-shape leaves are veined and mottled in shades of bright lime green. These colors deepen and intensify in cool weather and my foliage keeps its looks all winter. In spring to summer, long, erect flower spikes of tiny, bell-shaped pink flowers rise as many as 10 inches above my leaves where they remain for weeks.
Dolce are Perennial in zones 4 - 9, drought tolerant, attract hummingbirds, and easy to grow. I'll get in trouble if I don't promote my siblings, too. So here goes: Blackcurrant, Creme Brulee, Creme de Menthe, Licorice, Mocha Mint, and Peach Melba.Key Lime Pie Heuchera hybrid 'TNHEU042' USPP 16,735, Can 2,564

Very nice color. Looks good most of the year but does tend to fade a bit in the late summer. Still, it holds up wonderfully and I like it with Caramel.Tina RamseyTennesseeUnited States8 years ago
