    This cultivar has been a consistent performer in my zone 5 garden. Beautiful, bright yellow-green foliage color all season long. I find it is best sited in part shade with protection from afternoon sun.

    This has gorgeous lime green color that brights up a shady corner. It stayed completely evergreen for me in zone 7.

    I know it's not supposed to like wet feet, but I have it in pretty heavy wet clay with no issues. There was also no leaf burning even in very hot, humid weather with a couple of hours of very intense afternoon sun. This heuchera stays in a pretty round mound.
