Heucheras are incredible garden plants for their toughness, colour and texture which looks good ‘all year round’. Some varieties are bred specifically for foliage while others for their lovely ‘coral bell’ flowers. Heuchera ‘Paprika’ is the most striking orange to coral heuchera bred to date, evolving through glowing shades of orange to deep coral pink to burgundy, sure to set your shade on fire! A larger leafed form of Heuchera bred for good humidity tolerance and tropical appeal.
Heucheras prefer part shade conditions in New Zealand, growing best when protected from afternoon sun. The darker the foliage generally the more sun tolerant so lighter Heucheras like ‘Paprika’ will need some shade. Avoid over-watering or water logged soils, ensure good drainage as with all Heucheras. Take care not to bury the crown of Heucheras when planting. Water and feed occasionally with slow release fertiliser.
