I ordered three promise heuchera last spring. I planted them in morning sun and afternoon shade in zone 8b southeast U.S. The specs on this site said sun or shade. They melted from the sun and heat and never grew in spite of great soul and adequate water. I really doubt if they are a sun plant (even morning sun) in northeast Florida. Extremely disappointed as I have been in general writhe many poorly performing Proven Winners plants I have bought.

I purchased 7 of these at a local nursery- such beautiful color! Unfortunately all 7 were devoured by deer before I could even get them planted. I thought they might bounce back because they had a few leaves here and there and the crowns appeared in tack. Unfortunately all died. Very disappointed in what was marketed as deer resistant!Lyndsey, Virginia, United States, 8 weeks ago
I planted where it will get lots of sun , some later in the afternoon. The leaves at first were going brown but when I watered it every morning it bounced back. Love the colorWendy, Canada, 27 weeks ago
