Heuchera sanguinea ‘Forever Red’
Heuchera ‘Forever Red’ is a striking perennial plant that adds bold colour and texture to any garden. Its deep red, ruffled leaves are the star of the show, providing year-round contrast to other plants in the garden.
This cultivar is fast growing, with a compact habit and mounded shape. These features make Heuchera ‘Forever Red’ ideal for use in borders, rock gardens, and containers. It is also a great option for small gardens, underplanting, and filling in gaps in larger landscapes.
In addition to its eye-catching foliage, Heuchera ‘Forever Red’ also produces small, delicate, bell-shaped white flowers that bloom in mid-spring and summer. These flowers are held on tall stems that rise 60 cm above the ground, and add an extra touch of beauty to the plant. The flowers also attract small pollinators, making it a great choice for those who want to support local wildlife.
Heuchera ‘Forever Red’ is low-maintenance and tolerant of a wide range of conditions. It prefers part sun/shade and moist, well-drained soil. Full sun is also an option if there is fairly consistent water. This plant is frost hardy, and deepens in colour during cold weather. It is perfectly happy in warmer climates as well, and drought tolerant once established, particularly in shade.
With its vibrant foliage and easy care, Heuchera ‘Forever Red’ is a great way to add a pop of colour to any garden. Perfect for adding a tropical feel to cool climate gardens.
To keep the leaves looking their best, we recommend some extra watering during summer.
