Description

Extremely Heat and Humidity Tolerant

An absolute "must have" heuchera, 'Georgia Peach' astounds and delights with giant, rounded leaves of silvery peach with deep rose tints and prominent veining. It's an understatement to say that this is an attention-getting plant; the only word that really describes it is "eye-popping".

Content in sun or shade, this Janet Egger introduction reaches just 14 inches high (when not in bloom) and 2 feet wide, but the individual leaves can grow quite large—8 inches is not unheard of. It leafs out in mid-spring with pinkish orange tones overlaid with a silvery sheen, and by early summer, it is topped with clusters of ivory blooms on 30-inch stems. Hummingbirds and butterflies love these blooms, visiting frequently during this period.

As the summer heat sets in, Heuchera 'Georgia Peach,' a highly heat- and humidity-tolerant plant, flourishes in border or container, its leaves becoming a bit less brilliant, only to rebound into glory with shades of pink, red, and burgundy in autumn. This color continues through winter in mild and warm climates, where Heuchera 'Georgia Peach' is evergreen.

The H. villosa parentage of Heuchera 'Georgia Peach' is responsible for much of its adaptability to heat, and it also possesses all the vigor you would expect of a native American plant. Pests and diseases tend to leave Heuchera 'Georgia Peach' alone. Deer would rather feast elsewhere. Soil conditions can be considerably less than ideal without affecting its performance. After the first season, all it really needs is good drainage and at least some sunshine. What could be easier?

Heuchera 'Georgia Peach' is part of the Southern Bell series developed by Terra Nova, and we think it's the absolute star of the bunch. There is simply no other color blend like it, though many heuchera can make a bid for most dramatic plant in the garden. There is no doubt that it offers terrific contrast to just about every other plant in the shade border, from hosta to fern.

Find a special spot for Heuchera 'Georgia Peach' this season. It will repay you with trouble-free beauty for many seasons, and is likely to become the talking-point of the border.
