Dan Heims - Proven Winners
Over the past few years, the
Heuchera craze has been
gaining momentum as
new and exciting
colors spanning
the rainbow have
been introduced
by breeders
worldwide.
Though some have
showy flowers, it’s the
foliage color that really steals
the show. We offer Heucheras
in shades of purple, red,
yellow, near-black, silver,
orange, green, and variegated
varieties too. With all of this
selection, there’s a Heuchera
for everyone’s garden!
Heuchera
TRAITS: Heucheras are mounding plants with heart-shaped,
rounded, or triangular lobed leaves. They tend to be evergreen in
most climates. Sprays of tiny flowers ranging in color from cream to
red are produced on tall, wispy stems that are excellent for cutting.
CULTURE: Heucheras are easy to grow in flower borders, rock gardens, or containers. When grown in partial shade (preferably afternoon shade), they are most
vigorous and have the strongest coloration. Plants grown in full sun or full shade will
survive, but may be smaller and not quite as vibrant. Robust H. villosa hybrids are
more heat and humidity tolerant. Start with good soil when planting, making sure
that it is well-drained. Visit www.WaltersGardens.com for growing information.
BREEDER PROFI LES
Several important breeders have dedicated many years to hybridizing Heucheras including Dan Heims of Terra Nova Nurseries and Thierry Delabroye of
France. We are proud to offer selections from these important hybridizers.
Dan Heims
Dan Heims of Terra Nova
Nurseries, the name most
people associate with the
genus Heuchera, has
been a self-proclaimed
“hortiholic” since
1973. Following
their first commercial
introduction, Heuchera s. ‘Snowstorm’ in
the late 1980s, Terra Nova
has introduced over 550 new
varieties, many of which are offered in this
catalog. Two of Dan’s favorites are ‘Obsidian’ and ‘Peach Flambé’, available on p. 118.
To learn more about the genus Heuchera,

Dan Heims from Timber Press.

Thierry Delabroye
Thierry Delabroye of France has been
hard at work introducing many new H.
villosa cultivars to
market over the
past few years.
Beginning with
H. ‘Caramel’, a
golden orange
selection, Thierry
has hybridized Heucheras in a rainbow of
colors and sizes. Both growers and
gardeners alike have been impressed
with their heat and humidity tolerance
as well as their robust growth habit.

the next few pages.
