Red Lightning Heuchera -
The red lighting heuchera is an amazingly versatile perennial plant that has great tolerance to heat and humidity. It has a tidy mounding habit that features large, bright golden leaves with beautiful red veining that makes them stand out in your garden. It blooms in late spring to early summer, bringing forth tiny white bell-shaped flowers perched atop slender stems that can rise to 18 inches, adding to the visual appeal of this variety. A mature plant may grow to 10-12 inches high with a spread of 14-16 inches.
Caring for this and other heuchera varieties is pretty easy and straightforward. To keep the plant happy and free from leaf scorch, protect it from the hot afternoon sun. Like other heuchera varieties, the Red Lighting will do well being planted in partial sun to full shade, and grows well in moist, normal well drained soils. It will survive neutral, alkaline or acidic soils too. Any winter burned leaves can be removed in the spring. Apart from this, you do not need to do any pruning.
This heuchera is the perfect choice for adding color to your border, but can also be used as a container plant, edging plant, for rock gardens, woodland gardens, and more. It is a great ground cover plant, and looks even better if planted in groups. It is deer resistant and rabbit resistant, but loved by butterflies.

Please Note: Beginning in September, many plants begin to go dormant.
Some plants may have already dropped their leaves, died back to the ground or are beginning to turn yellow when they arrive to you. Deciduous trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers do go dormant.
This is a normal stage for plants at this time of the year. Plant upon arrival as roots continue to grow while the ground is warm. Some plants require seasonal maintenance and may have been pruned.
