Terra Nova Releases Heat And Drought Tolerant Heuchera
Catch a glimpse of ‘Gotham,’ a new introduction from the Oregon-based grower/breeder.
February 28, 2012
Named after the infamous city in which Batman resides, ‘Gotham’ is the latest addition to the City heuchera series from Terra Nova Nurseries. With obsidian black leaves, this compact plant is perfect in a container or as an edger in the landscape.
‘Gotham’ is a fast-growing variety that produces primrose-yellow flowers that stand out like the moon on a dark night from spring to fall. ‘Gotham’ is a cross between H. micrantha and H. sanguinea, enabling it to tolerate extreme heat and drought, as well as perform well during the winter months in USDA Zones 4 to 9.
‘Gotham’ averages 6 inches in width and 10 inches in height. It prefers moderately well-drained, organic soil.
