Those of you gardening in shady or semi-shady areas will appreciate how brightly colored Heuchera foliage can add color to a bed. Despite the amount of sunshine it gets, this plant can thrive in both full sun and full shade, as long as it’s watered.

The foliage of most cultivars reaches 8 to 12 inches in height with a spread of 1 to 2 feet wide. When blooming, the flower stalks reach 1 to 3 feet tall.
