‘Rio’ Heuchera

‘Rio’ Heuchera

Bring some of the bright vibrance of Rio de Janeiro to your garden or containers with ‘Rio’ heuchera. This stunning addition to the coral bells family will give you a color show all year long. It’s color seemingly changes with the seasons. New growth unfurls in a lush peach amber, as it matures the leaves will go amber to tan and finally encore in a stunning yellow amber. ‘Rio’ like it’s namesake city can tolerate more sun and heat then her lighter colored sisters. Put ‘Rio’ front and center in a container or use as a border in a perennial flower bed. A rapid grower, her mounding habit will stay short at only 14″ while spreading to 9″. Hardy from zone 4 ‘Rio’ will thrive even on the other side of the Cascades during the coldest of winters. Swing by Squak Mt Nursery this season to check out ‘Rio’ and our other heucheras.
