The breeder of 'Berry Timeless', Walters Gardens, calls this plant a revolution in Heuchera genetics because of the unbelievable flower production. A myriad of light pink flowers which age to a deeper rose red are produced in tight wands on tall scapes. What is so remarkable is what happens when the flowers are spent—they dry in place on the stems similar to what Statice does instead of falling off and leaving bare stems, thus the reference to the everlasting flowers in its name. You'll get a two toned look of light and dark pink flowers on the same plant for a strong show of color. Even better, this plant blooms and reblooms continuously, not in waves, from early summer to frost! The foliage is a lightly silvered mint green.

Growing and Maintenance Tips
Heucheras are easy care perennials. They like rich, well drained soil with a neutral pH. They dislike wet soils especially in the winter. Amend the soil with organic matter to enrich it but do not add peat moss which they dislike. Situate Heucheras where they will receive morning sun and shade over the hottest part of the day. They will survive in full sun as long as there is constant moisture. Heucheras are evergreen so do not cut them back in the fall. Clean up tattered foliage in the spring. They will benefit from a winter mulch to prevent them from heaving out of the ground due to the winter freeze thaw cycle. Heucheras are somewhat salt tolerant so they can be used along pathways where salt might accumulate.
