Brilliant Year-round Color!

Brightest reds in spring and fall
Plant Patent Applied For

Talk about "flaming color"! This new Heuchera from master plantsman Dan Heims outdoes all others in the family with searing red tones, brightest in spring and fall but persisting through summer and, in mild climates, winter too! Large, lobed, and rounded, these leaves are the brightest thing in the border. And they arise on adaptable, easy plants that thrive in sun or shade and also set flowers!

Spring is a glorious season for 'Fire Alarm,' with the vivid scarlet leaves unfurling all over the plant. Just 9 inches tall when not in bloom, this Heuchera spreads 10 to 18 inches wide, with excellent branching for a dense, full look.

By early summer, when bell-shaped pink blooms shimmy above the foliage on maroon stems, the red tones have matured to a darker shade, but keep their unusual rosy glow. The foliage is leathery and more substantial than that of most other Heuchera cultivars, less likely to burn in the summer heat.

The flowers add another 4 inches or so of height to the plant, and last intermittently all summer, though most heavily early in the season. Then, as the cooler tones of autumn arrive, the foliage turns fire-engine red again for another several months, before darkening for winter (or dropping in the northern end of its hardiness range).

Adaptable to sun or part shade, 'Fire Alarm' is useful as an accent, groundcover, or container subject. Butterflies adore it, and it looks good year-round in most areas. No perennial is easier to grow and maintain in well-drained garden soil or containers. Make sure to find a special place for this scene-stealer in your garden. Zones 4-9.
