Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Alumroot, Venus Alumroot
So bright they seem to jump out of the garden, the large, lobed, silvery-white leaves of Heuchera ‘Venus’ are crisply veined in avocado-green. Delicate, white, bell-shaped flowers bloom atop thin, wiry stems in late spring to early summer.
Heuchera is happiest when grown in partial sun or bright filtered shade similar to that of a naturally open forest. In the South it requires protection from direct afternoon sun. Well-drained, neutral, organic-rich soil with average moisture is needed for best growth and performance. This striking Heuchera is a stylish choice for container compositions, mixed borders or woodland gardens and makes a fine edging plant or groundcover.
The diverse genus Heuchera comprises approximately 50 species and hundreds of hybrid cultivars. These hardy perennials are endemic to North America and are most commonly grown for their attractive basal clumps of evergreen, semi-evergreen or herbaceous foliage that comes in a variety of solid or variegated colors.
