About Heuchera Palace Purple
This type of heuchera has been a staple in my shade garden for years. The foliage is lovely and it needs very little light to grow well. The deep purple leaves of Heuchera Palace Purple are a beautiful contrast to the other shade loving plants like alchemilla. It’s a no-fuss plant that can add color and contrast to your garden without any problems to go with it. Washington State University lists Heuchera as a deer resistant plant.

Planting and Growing Heuchera
Make sure your Heuchera “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area that is mostly shady. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and gently loosen the root ball. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot.
