Heucheras --- my favourite plant.
I started growing these quite colourful plants a few years ago,
I found them easy to grow, the lighter colour ones seem to do better in semi-shade, the darker, manage some sun, if small, start them off in a pot in shade, keep moist, not to wet, as they start to grow,feed them with a general fertilizer, the flowers are loved by Bees, watch out for the Vine Weevil grubs,these dreadful insects can cause such fatalities , they eat the roots,the results dont always show for some time,i usually use Vine Weevil earth soak, The plants can take some time to take off, so easy does it.
Another thing to know, they are very easy to propagate . so try and enjoy.
