Heuchera You're So Vein has chartreuse leaves with scalloped edges. It formas a nicely shaped full clump. New leaf growth has chartreuse veining and bronze red coloring that closely follows the vein. The flowers are the icing on the cake, with very bright, almost fluorescent pink flowers covering the plant in early summer. The calyxes are a lighter pink and give the effect of a bicolor look. A great new introduction.

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. 'You're So Vein' will thrive 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.
