The ‘Crisp’ series of Heucheras have characteristic crispy, wavy margins, providing a new texture effect, and available in four colours; ‘Apple’, ‘Blackberry’, ‘Peach’ and ‘Pear’. These Heucheras have a tight habit and are noted for their winter colours and tolerance of the cooler climate due to a higher percentage of H. micrantha in their breeding. With a series of distinctive colours but with a common texture to the foliage this offers a new dimension to your shade garden landscaping . Heuchera ‘Apple Crisp’ is a crisp green foliage Heuchera with a silver white ‘veiling’ and compact habit. Flowers are short-stemmed and white growing to approximately 25cm in flower height.
Heucheras prefer part shade conditions in New Zealand, growing best when protected from afternoon sun. The darker the foliage generally the more sun tolerant and the lighter the foliage the more shade is required. Heucheras in the Crisp Series are tolerant of drought conditions and extremes of winter weather. Avoid over-watering or water logged soils, ensure good drainage as with all Heucheras. Water and feed occasionally with slow release fertiliser.
