Terra Nova Nurseries’ new 2012 sneak peek variety introduction is Heuchera ‘Galaxy.’ The latest addition to the company’s heuchera Little Cutie series, this variety boasts large, thick leathery foliagethat’s heavily variegated with spots of color on a dark background.
The leaves emerge a bright red, turning darker as they age. The variegation, however, grows lighter in color and more noticeable as the season progresses.
Heuchera ‘Galaxy’ loves heat and humidity, but performs well in cool climates too. The average size includes a 12-inch width, 9-inch height and 14-inch flower height.
Terra Nova Nurseries has also created a plant profile page and grower recipe specific to this new variety, so growers interested in possible liner orders can learn about growing habits, plant characteristics, fertilization recommendations, water requirements and other insights provided by the breeding team.
