Plant Heuchera cylindrica in the sun or partial shade in organically rich, humus-rich, moist soil that is also well-drained. In its native environment, it grows in rocky areas. It performs much better in full sun. Try not to let the soil dry down but never go soggy. In general, it is disease-free and pest-free but in cold climates, frost heaving the roots can occur and watch out for heuchera rust, bud eelworm, or vine weevils.

About Online Flower Garden & Dino

Dino
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
