Hot Color to Light Up the Landscape, Heuchera Fire Alarm

Set your landscape ablaze with this spectacular flaming-red heuchera variety, Fire Alarm. A real show stopper in any season, this heuchera features big, glossy foliage that is bright red in spring, taking on brown tones for summer and then turns back to bright red come fall. White spikes of pink, bell-shaped flowers rise above the foliage in summer. Heuchera Fire Alarm offers bold texture and color contrast in mixed containers, mass plantings, borders and groundcovers and is evergreen in mild winter climates. It is often used as a 'filler' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination.

Fire Alarm will grow to approximately 10-inches tall at maturity with a spread of 16-inches. Its foliage tends to remain low and dense right to the ground. This plant performs well in both full sun and full shade and is loved by butterflies, pollinators, hummingbirds and is deer resistant. Heuchera Fire Alarm is a delightful selection to complement just about any color scheme.
