Heuchera 'Citronelle', offers a wild color to the full shade or partially shaded garden. The lime green look is a great choice for offsetting darker foliage, especially other heucheras. Small white flowers are borne late spring/early summer, but are insignificant compared to the bold foliage. A choice plant for growing underneath deciduous trees, in containers (best not to over-winter them), as a border plant and in mass plantings. The flowers will attract bees and the occasional butterfly. Heuchera villosa parentage so expect robust growth, and tolerance to heat and humidity.
