Advice on heucheras for sunny spots

This question was asked by

Hi. I bought some lovely Heuchera from you last year including the marvellous Lipstick, and would like to get some more for a new border which is especially for bees. It is very sunny and I’m not sure which – if any – Heuchera would be best. I’m flexible on colour but it is quite a large space and I want the plants to be happy. I live in Dorset with sandy soil so not too cold in the winter (except this one!!) All advice gratefully received even if it’s that Heuchera not a good choice. Would prefer you to email me if that’s ok. Many thanks Sue

Hi Sue
Sorry for kate reply ..where the time go?!
Any Heuchera red, black, purple, silver and most but not all orange are good for sunny positions.
No Heucherella or Tiarella for sunny positions.
If you look at ‘plant information’ on each plant (at the bottom of the product page) it does tell you the best aspect as well just incase your unsure.
We recommend adding a little fibrous material if its very sandy, such as leaf mould etc as this will help to keep a bit of moisture in the ground during the summer,
They love well drained so thats no problem.
Hope this helps

Kind regards Vicky
