Heavenly Heucheras 2015

How To Grow Heucheras

Posted By: Rebecca van der Zalm in Perennials

Heucheras are a perennial plant grown most often for their striking, long lasting, colourful foliage. Also known as Coral Bells or Alum Root, they are an excellent addition to the garden or container. Heucheras are available in many colours ranging from near-purple black to stunning lemon-gold. There are a 40+ species, all of which are native to the Americas. In this post, we'll introduce you to the basics of growing heucheras as well as showcase 9 of our favourites for 2015.

How to Grow Heucheras

Heucheras are a perennial plant predominantly hardy in zones 4-9. They generally prefer shade to part shade, but some varieties will tolerate full sun. Too much sun will cause leaf scorch or colour fade. All appreciate moist, but well drained soils.

Most Heucheras bloom on tall spikes in late spring or summer, but the flowers are somewhat insignificant. Some gardeners prefer to cut back the flowers, but they are known to attract hummingbirds to the garden. Cutting back the flowers will redirect more energy into leaf production, so it’s your call! Heucheras can be divided every 3-5 years to keep them looking fresh and to avoid them dying out in the center. While they are hardy in our area, a layer of protective mulch will help them survive any extreme weather conditions. Prune away dead or withered leaves in early spring.

So without further ado… here are our 9 Heavenly Heucheras for Fall 2015.

Also known as Lenten Roses and Christmas Roses, Hellebores are wonderful winter and spring blooming perennials that feature elegant flowers and attractive foliage for shady areas. They are typically evergreen to semi-evergreen with attractive foliage with flowers in a range of colours and as either single or double flowered varieties.

Most have flowers that nod or droop, but many newer varieties stand more erect. Christmas Roses, also known as Helleborus niger get their name from the fact that given the right conditions, they will bloom right around Christmas time. Lenten Roses, or Helleborus orientalis generally bloom later in the winter or early spring.

Some of our favourite varieties this year include:

Hellebores 2015

Helleborus x hybridus ‘Peppermint Ice’

This striking hellebore hybrid features large, double flowers that are light pink with a rim of darker pink edging. Its dark pink on the backs for added appeal. A delight for the winter garden. Shade tolerant and deer resistant. Grows to a height of 14 inches and spreads to 2ft.

Helleborus x hybridus ‘Berry Swirl’

Berry Swirl Hellebore is another double flowering variety with orchid colours, some with a creamy-white centre kissed with orchid shade edging. Grows to 14 inches in height and 24 inches across.

Helleborus x hybridus ‘Rose Quartz’

Rose Quartz Hellebore is a double flowering variety that has every white petal edged in rose. It’s a taller variety that grows to 24 inches in height with a 12 inch spread. A delight in the winter garden that is both shade tolerant and deer resistant.

Helleborus x hybridus Spring Promise ‘Mary Lou’

One of the Spring Promise Hellebore series, Mary Lou features single, soft pink blooms with red spots on each petal atop of evergreen, leathery foliage. These blooms appear in late winter to early spring. A great addition to a shady, high profile area.

Hellebores 2015

Helleborus Winter Jewels Golden Lotus Strain

This charming hellebore features golden, lotus-like flowers. Many of these double yellows will have red edges and some will have red streaking on the backs as well. A wonderful part of the shade garden where the yellow flowers will lighten up otherwise dark areas.

Helleborus ‘Silver Dollar’

This Hellebore offers silvery, holly-like evergreen foliage with creamy green blooms. Petal backs are mauve with a rosy pink blush. Ideal for shady areas and woodland gardens. Grows 24-30 inches in height and up to 24 inches across.

Helleborus Winter Jewels ‘Harlequin Gem’

This variety represents a whole group of double flowered plants with very complex colours; the inside colour contrasting with the outside. Can be streaked with red, green or yellow, the outside is black, purple or red.

Helleborus Frost Kiss ‘Penny’s Pink’

This hellebore is a beautiful selection with fantastic foliage that heralds spring with hot pink veined leaves held on purple petioles. Purple buds open to pink and chartreuse flowers that deepen as they mature. Summer foliage has bright, emerald green veining. Exceptionally long blooming. Naturalizes beautifully in woodland gardens. Grows 18-24 inches high and wide. Spreads slowly forming a nice clump.

How to Grow Hellebores

Hellebores prefer shady areas with rich, moist, but well-drained soil. They dislike the extremes of very dry or waterlogged soil. Some shelter from the cold winter winds is also recommended. Apply a layer of mulch each year to add further protection and preserve moisture. They are light feeders and don’t need much in the way of extra fertilizer, but a dose of all purpose fertilizer in early spring never hurts. To encourage more blooms, choose a fertilizer with a high middle number.

Caring For Hellebores

Hellebores benefit from a yearly pruning and cleanup. For most varieties, simply deadhead (remove) spent flowers after they bloom and trim away any foliage that is dead, damaged or diseased. Doing this is particularly important for diseased foliage as Hellebores sometimes suffer from leaf spot and the foliage can serve as protection for unwanted overwintering insects. For Hellebore foetidus and H. argutifolius you may also want to cut off the flowered stems at the ground level.

We recommend that you avoid moving Hellebores once planted as they resent root disturbance and tend to sulk. If you move them or damage the roots, expect it to sit there and do little for the next several months.

Note About Hellebore Availability

Please note that quantities of specialty Hellebores like the ones mentioned are limited. If you are seeking a specific variety, please call ahead, 604.882.1201, to confirm availability. At the time this article was written (mid-March), many varieties have already finished blooming; so while this years show may be over, it is still an excellent time to plant them for next year.

Well here is a topic many gardeners will be keen on - what types of perennials will tolerate moist or wet soils?

Plants for Moist Soils

Being West Coast gardeners we do get quite a bit of rain and many of us find that there are always areas where the soil may remain moist or in some cases hold standing water for periods of time.

Luckily there are many perennials that will grow quite well in moist locations but only a select few that have adapted to growing in areas with standing water.

Moist sites indicate soils that are constantly damp or damp for the majority of the year, the soil may be moist but drains well and is not soggy.

Wet soils refer to areas where the soil is saturated with moisture (soggy) and may be occasionally exposed to standing water for short durations (several days).

Some of the plants that I would suggest include:

Astilbe | False Spirea

False Spirea

Astilbe spp.

Easy care perennial for shade or partial sun. Will form a neat mound of airy, fern-like leaves in shades of green to burgundy-red. This long blooming perennial produces tall, feathery plumes in a range of white, pink and red. Highly adaptable they prefer a moist soil in light shade but will tolerate full sun and drier soils once plants are well established. Height/Spread: Varies Zone: 4

Actea | Cimicifuga Hillside Black Beauty

Bugbane

Cimicifuga spp. (Actea)

Close relatives of Actaea these clumping perennials have given rise to numerous popular cultivars. The most common species are C. racemosa and C. simplex, which have divided, lacy foliage that forms an upright clump. Selections such as 'Brunette', 'Hillside Black Beauty' and 'Black Negligee' have highly attractive dark burgundy-black leaves. Plants are slow to establish but in time make spectacular specimens. Arching spikes of fragrant white to light pink flowers late summer into fall. Grow in full sun or light shade in moist soil. Height/Spread: Varies Zone: 3

Rose Mallow

Hibiscus moscheutos

Bold, almost shrub-like perennial with woody stems clothed in large green or reddish leaves. Stunning single flowers, reminiscent of their tropical cousins, appear from summer into fall and are varying shades of pink, red and white. Plant in full, hot sun in a well-drained but consistently moist soil. Plants perform best in a neutral to alkaline soil so dust a little lime around the base of the plants each year. Being perennial they will die back and can be cut to the ground every fall. Height: 2-3m Spread: 1-2m Zone: 5

Ligularia Plant

Leopard Plant

Ligularia spp.

Easy to grow, robust perennials having bold leaves with rounded or heavily serrated edges. Foliage can range from rich green to shades of purple and burgundy. Flowers are either tall golden spikes (L. stenocephala 'The Rocket') or flat daisy-like, golden heads (L. dentata); mid to late summer. Plants like a partially shaded site with a deep, rich soil that remains moist. Try and avoid planting where they get hot afternoon sun as plants will wilt and possible burn. Great for along stream banks or the ponds edge. Height/Spread: Varies Zone: 4

Petasites | Butterbur Plant

Butterbur

Petasites spp.

Robust plants with thick underground rhizomes and bold tropical-like leaves. Short spikes of pale pink to white flowers in early spring before the leaves appear. Plants prefer moist sites and are excellent around ponds, streams and boggy areas. Easy to grow in partial shade. Petasites japonicus var. giganteus is a large growing selection with enormous, rounded leaves that resemble rhubarb. Petasites palmatus 'Golden Palms' bears large palmate leaves of golden yellow. To control plants from spreading too aggressively, place a heavy plastic container into the ground and plant within. Height/Spread: Varies Zone: 4

Gunnera | Dinosaur Plant

Gunnera

Gunnera spp

Gunnera are amazing water loving perennials that look like they are from another era. In fact, some people call it the Dinosaur Plant. Massive leaves can reach several feet across when the plant is given constant moisture. Ideal at the edge of a pond or water feature. Plant it near where passers-by can see it and it will certainly become a talking point!

Other Perennials That Tolerate Standing Water

  • Juncus
