How much sun for Heuchera Caramel?

caliloo(z6/7)June 18, 2006

Hey all!

I've just discovered the wonderful world of Heucheras and I ahve recently bought a few to add to my meager beginnings. One that really caught my eye is Caramel.

How much sun/shade is optimum for this plant? I am probably closer to z7 then 6 and we can get several days in the 90's with high humidity here.

Thanks for any help/advice!

I have always had trouble with the lighter colored heucheras. A nursery owner that I have come to know told me that the lighter colors need more fertilizer and light because they have less chloraphil in their leaves. Makes sense I guess. I put Lime Rickey in ta sunnier spot last year and its doing great this year. A Snow Angel in a shadier spot is almost not there(bought a new one).
