Peach Melba has been a very poor performer in my zone 6b gardens. I have had two plants for several years, and neither has increased in size. They have struggled so much that I am amazed that they are still alive. I have moved them to a variety of locations with different amounts of shade and water, but nothing has made them happy.

The second year it was more of a peach color, but didn't get as large. Not a real vigorous grower here in zone 4.

I've had this plant for a few seasons now and I really don't have much good to say about it. The leaf color is wonderful...that much I'll give it. But it is simply not a good grower for me. While other Heuchera planted nearby do very well, this one struggles every year and has progressively gotten smaller each season. This is likely its last year for me before it goes to the compost bin unless it does something dramatically different...but so far, it looks like more of the same. Slow growth and smaller than it's ever been.
