Description:  This special heucheras deserves a place in your garden.  The leaves of this plant are chartreuse in summer, but  when temperatures cool the leaves turn bright red with chartreuse edges.  This plant likes a little morning sun to bring out its best coloring.  Gardeners appreciate its heat and humidity tolerance and ease of growing.  It looks terrific as a ground cover, edger, container and when planted in groups  Remove faded blooms for additional flowering.  Another plant for hummingbirds and butterflies.  And the deer don’t seem to like them!!!
