Heucheras

(also known as Alum Roots, Coral Bells, Rock Geraniums)

Seiont are now one of the largest producers of P9 Heucheras in the UK sales approaching 160.000 a year. We concentrate on the newest introductions almost entirely from Dan Heims of Terra Nova Nurseries in the USA. Dan Heims has been breeding this important genus for over 20 years.

 

Heucheras are reliable perennials that attract bees and butterflies. More and more customers now buy Heucheras not only for their varied coloured foliage but also for their flowers. Some of the best merits of these plants are :

 

  • easy to grow
  • quick production cycle
  • most Heucheras can be grown in full shade or full sun
  • evergreen
  • deer-resistant
  • slug resistant
  • salt tolerant (ideal for coastal regions)
  • can be grown under walnut trees (resistant to the toxin Juglone)

 

If cut back in spring, Heucheras will respond with some vibrant new foliage.
