Snow Angel is my favorite Heuchera. Its abundant coral pink flowers contrast perfectly with the foliage and given its decent size, puts on quite a show for around 4 weeks. It's also one of the most vigorous Heuchera I have, increasing well and tolerating full sun, at least southern New England full sun.

This is also one of my favorite heuchera. The beautiful variegated leaves look good the entire growing season, don't seem to burn in the sun like many of the light colored ones do and look great planted next to darker varieties. It is very vigorous in my zone 4 garden. The beautiful pink flowers just keep coming all summer long.
