Heuchera 'Citronelle'

Availability: Out of stock

'Citronelle' features yellow to chartreuse foliage depending on the light it is in.


So bright it almost glows! It has cream flowers in mid to late summer. Heucheras with villosa backgrounds have more heat and humidity tolerance. NOTE: be careful not to bury the crowns when planting. (Photos courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.)

Excellent plant for any garden Review by Marilyn
i placed this Heuchera in a shade garden along with ferns, hostas, and astilbe. The contrast of the Citronelle with the other darker green plants maker this garden much more interesting. Love this plant. (Posted on June 17, 2015)
