Hot Hot Hot !
We have to thank Dan Heims of Terra Nova Nurseries (Oregon, USA) for his hard work. His most recent hybrid selection Heuchera 'Fire Alarm' has already attracted attention in the gardening world and has given us "Heuchera-ged"* a hit for the time being!
This hybrid is close to Heuchera 'Autumn Leaves' as it has tough, thick bright red foliage in spring and autumn and darkens to a brown-red during the summer. Delicate sprays of pinkish white flowers from May to July and a neat clump-forming habit.
As its colouring is quite unusual in the garden, combining it with other plants can be a challenge! Your ideas and suggestions are welcome!
Grow in light shade in humus-rich, well-drained, moist, good garden soil. Very resistant to passing summer droughts.
Maintenance: organic mulch will help keep the soil moist in summer and to keep the mound raised and away from the soil after a period of frost in winter. Prune the inflorescences and damaged leaves at the end of winter. Divide every 3 years.
