Heuchera villosa ‘Autumn Bride’

7 Photos


Heuchera villosa ‘Autumn Bride’ is easily recognized by its large, fuzzy, green leaves. ‘Autumn Bride’ also features a very long-lasting and profuse floral display of large, white inflorescences. Unfortunately, the flowers flopped under their own weight. It was also noted that the flowering time was not uniform among all five plants, with some flowering up to a month before others. This may be attributed to the fact that this cultivar is typically grown from seed which can lead to a great deal of variability. When grown in full sun, ‘Autumn Bride’ was stunted and discolored for most of the growing season, and thus is only recommended for part shade – full shade conditions.
