Thrives in the sunny border or the dry shade under trees and shrubs!

Creamy pink blooms accent the foliage to beautiful effect!
Plant Patent 20,764. For bold color in sun or shade in almost any season, 'Christa' can't be beat! One of the exciting new H. villosa hybrids from French breeder Thierry Delabroye, 'Christa' offers improved tolerance of heat and humidity, and just may surpass 'Caramel' as American gardeners' favorite peach-toned Heuchera! Its new foliage emerges rose-purple with peach coloring on the undersides and positively glows when lit with the low rays of the early spring sun. Over time, the leaves develop more peach coloration with a light dusting of silver, providing a shimmering backdrop to the creamy pink bell-shaped blooms that top the plant in early to midsummer.

'Christa' forms a neat, compact mound of foliage that reaches 8 to 10 inches tall and wide and remains evergreen in forgiving climates. It's happy in the garden or in containers, and thanks to its North American native vigor, its improved tolerance of sun, heat, and humidity allows it to flourish anywhere from the open sunny border to the dry shade under trees and shrubs. Deer and rabbits will shy away from this plant, but butterflies and hummingbirds will be attracted to it in abundance! Zones 4-9.
