  • Description

  • Notes

'Ruby Veil' is a heuchera hybrid with rounded, lobed leaves in a distinctive ruby red to maroon hue, with darker veining and silver blotches. The plant grows about 8 to 12 inches tall. White flowers appear on tall stems in early summer.
Grow in well drained soil in full sun to light shade (depending on the variety). When planted in full sun, they do best when not situated where it is very hot, such as against walls or by sidewalks. Ideally, plant in loamy soils, in dry shade to part shade conditions. Remove entire stalk after flowering to encourage continued bloom. In our cold winters, Heuchera crowns can heave above the soil line. Mulching after the ground freezes hard, will prevent the freezing and thawing that pushes the plants up. Check periodically to make sure the roots are not exposed. Replant, if possible. Some varieties are listed as evergreen; in our climate, it depends on the variety, the winter, and where they are planted. But even if not evergreen, the foliage carries well into the fall and early winter months. They do not do well in damp soils.
