What do you do to your Herchuras to get ready for winter? I am new to them and need advice to properly care for them. I thank you in advance. Have a great grow day, Paula

ps. this is Rootbeer which has grown great for me here.

RE: Winter Care

Your Rootbeer looks great (love that name). I am in Zone 5a so much colder than your zone. I typically do not do anything special for winterizing heucheras. Fortunately even for my zone, they stay evergreen (almost). I also do not apply extra mulch or any special protection. Just leave them the way they are. I have not lost any over the last few years.

I do nothing at all. They are evergreen here so there is no cutting back or protection needed.

I do not do anything for them other than to keep fallen leaves away from them, as slugs use them for cover to munch away all winter here in the Pacific Northwest.
