Heuchera

We offer a few, carefully chosen Heuchera with coloured leaves and flowers, most of which have been developed in the last 10 years. Heuchera thrive in British gardens. They are tough, will tolerate and even thrive in a semi-shaded position and they are not pH sensitive. Heuchera owe their popularity to their evergreen nature and to the enormous range of foliage colours that are available. Heuchera are not attacked by slugs or snails, will thive in the open ground but they also make fantastic plants to add to pots or raised beds, giving colour all year around. I have seen Heuchera used brilliantly as underplanting beneath pot grown Dahlias. Leaf colour on Heuchera may also change in response to lower temperatures, giving rise to dramatic Autumn highlights. Heuchera can grow out of the ground over time, but lifting and replanting deeper will re-invigorate old plants. Heuchera are remarkably pest and disease free, but vine weevil larvae will feed on unprotected roots and may need treatment.

Lastly Heuchera are resistant to the chemical Juglone, produced by walnut trees to suppress vegetation beneath the canopy, so can be used in this difficult planting situation, (Cyclamen also seem to work well).

Galium odoratum

A very useful groundcover for tough, dry shady conditions.

A mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen in the walled garden at NT Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously, but it is a plant that will survive the toughest of dry shady conditions.
