Heuchera 'Fire Alarm', is by far the reddiest heuchera to date. Like hot coals this variety lights up any bed or border in full sun all the way to full shade. The cooler parts of the year bring out the rich red hues with the summer color being a reddish brown. Attractive white blooms are borne over top the rich foliage in late spring until about the middle of summer. A vigorous grower even through heat and humidity. Loved by butterflies, pollinators, and hummingbirds. Deer resistant.
