What, no love for Southern California?

I enjoyed reading Steve’s thoughts on the types of heucheras that do well in three important regions,with his specific recommendations...this post is so very well laid out. Keep posting!

Steve Roskopf

Hi Nina. I love Southern California! Those lucky enough to live in Southern California are best advised to select from the varieties that can tolerate heat. Some additional fantastic heat tolerant heucheras for Southern California include 'Circus', 'Miracle' and one of my personal favorites 'Spellbound'. All three offer unique colorful foliage. Gardeners living in the mountains of Southern California should consider heuchera that can tolerate temperature extremes of hot & cold. Good choices are 'Hollywood', 'Peppermint Spice' and 'Sugar Plum'. Hope this helps! Steve - Casita Azul

Graham Rice

Thanks Steve... He's a fount of heuchera wisdom, isn't he! I think perhaps I'll come back to this later in the year and ask him about some other regions.
