This dwarf plant overwinters in my Zone 6 in a shallow pot with other perennial dwarfs. It has been growing in this way for several years.

Talking about Coral Bells (Heuchera 'Lime Rickey'), Polymerous wrote:

I've grown this heuchera for many years, in different spots in my (Zone 9b, south SF Bay Area) garden. I have two observations about it:

1. This heuchera is very sensitive to sun and really needs to be in a full shade situation, or else filtered shade with very little sunlight. If it is not protected, as soon as the weather gets warm enough, it will fry.

2. I love heuchera and have tried growing many cultivars, but my garden is infested with rabbits and they seem to like most heuchera (and also the two tiarella that I have tried growing). The rabbits have had ample opportunity to devour this cultivar, but it seems that they don't like the taste very much. Young plants might get sampled (but never stripped), and the rabbits totally ignore the bigger plants. (When I refer to rabbits eating the heuchera, that means the entire plant, foliage and flowers both. Don't believe what you read about rabbits eating the flowers only - not true! Here they will happily eat most heucheras down to the hard core/stem - but not this one.)

Talking about Prairie Alumroot (Heuchera richardsonii), Cyclaminist wrote:

I wasn't interested in this plant for a long time, because the flowers are small and green and not that showy. But I saw this in a friend's yard, and there were all these bees with bright orange on them. It turns out they were sweat bees collecting orange pollen on their legs. So last year I decided to get the plant for the bees. The leaves are lovely, even though they don't have the fancy patterns of coral bells.

Talking about Coralbells (Heuchera sanguinea 'Snowfire'), frahnzone5 wrote:

Although this plant looks very similar to 'Snow Angel,' it has proved to be much hardier in my Chicago area, zone 5a, garden. I tried growing Snow Angel twice and both times it did not make it through the winter. In contrast, 'Snow Fire' has so far survived more than 5 years in the ground. It will be interesting to see whether it comes back this spring (2016) We've had wildly fluctuating temperatures with little or no snow cover. Not a good combination for the shallow-rooted heuchera.

This was a surprise I planted last year. I bought quite a few natives but could not remember all the names at the time. It was fun learning what they all were. This grew well in our exposed clay subsoil after we had some construction done. The flowers are quite small, but interesting if you take the time to look at them. The seeds are so small they are dispersed by wind.
