I have been collecting heuchera and heucherella for many years, and have had several varieties of Heucherella...none of which have been particularly outstanding...Except for this one. This plant is hardy (I am in Zone 5, though I do have this planted on the east side of the house and it only gets a couple of hours of noontime sun). It grows at a faster clip than any other heucherella I have had, and seems unfazed by anything that happens in the garden. Definitely worth having.
