Quick Overview:

Have you struggled with chartreuse-leaf Heuchera burning in the past? If so, you’ll love this new yellow Heuchera. Its best color is in part or filtered shade, where we’ve been pleased to observe almost no burning, a problem that plagues other varieties. Slightly ruffled, chartreuse leaves are produced on an especially vigorous habit, thanks to its Heuchera villosa heritage. The color will be more lime green in deeper shade. Over time, ‘Lemon Love’ will gradually spread to about 3′ wide if given the space. Cream flowers with hints of blush in the calyxes are produced above the foliage in early summer. A great color for brightening up your shade!

Description

Best grown in organically rich, humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade. Plants may be grown in full sun in the north. If grown in full sun, consistent moisture is important. Scorch and general foliage decline tend to occur if soils are allowed to dry out. Best foliage color typically occurs in part shade locations (particularly in the heat of the afternoon).  Remove stems of faded flowers to encourage additional bloom. Some gardeners prefer to remove flower stems before flowering if plants are being grown as ground covers for their foliage texture and color. Foliage is essentially evergreen in warm winter climates. In cold winter climates the amount of retained foliage color depends in large part upon the severity of the temperatures. A winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving. Divide clumps in spring every 3-4 years.
