Description :

For a number of years the American breeder Terra Nova Nurseries (Oregon, USA) has been undertaking an intensive selection programme to produce heucheras with new foliage colourings. Examples of the heucheras they have produced

Heuchera 'Berry Smoothie' is one of the latest varieties selected (2010) from a cross between Heuchera group Villosa X Heuchera americana.

Its foliage changes colour with the seasons, emerging bright pink in spring and turning violet pink by the end of summer.

This Heuchera has kept the good traits of its parents, including vigorous growth, good resistance to winter damp (Heuchera villosa) and good performance in summer heat (Heuchera americana).

In the garden we like to grow this lovely plant as edging for a shady border together with small, spring-flowering bulbs (Galanthus elwessi, Galanthus 'Flore Pleno', Ipheion), primroses (Primula 'Quaker's Bonnet', Primula 'Miss Indigo', Primula 'Pink Ice'), bleeding hearts (Dicentra spectabilis), ferns (Athyrium niponicum var. pictum), Viola 'Rebecca' and the Hosta 'Halcyon' for its extraordinary bluish foliage.

That gives you a graceful and softly feminine combination of plants.
