Emerges electric yellow with bright red veins in the spring. Turns chartreuse with softer red veins later in the season. Similar to Heuchera 'Electric Lime', but with finer leaves and more compact mature plant size. Heuchera villosa (native to the southeastern U.S.) is in its parentage for greater heat and humidity tolerance and a rapid growth rate. NOTE: be careful not to bury the crowns when planting.
