Heuchera ‘Lime Marmalade’

A tasty lime foliage sport from TNN's finest amber foliage Heuchera, 'Marmalade'. Super vigorous and full of frills. Like 'Marmalade' it is a tough plant and performs equally as well in the South as in the Northwest. Compared to 'Lime Rickey', 'Lime Marmalade' features a bigger, “landscape sized” form. With ruffled lime colored leaves and a large mounding habit it is showy in containers as well as in mixed beds, and masses. Easy to grow with good drainage.
