Fire Chief Heuchera
Heuchera x 'Fire Chief' PP21880


USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 4a-9b  Find Your Zone



Special Attributes

'Fire Chief' has a compact habit (9" tall by 15" wide) with red foliage and very free flowering 18" tall stems of flowers that are a bicolor of dark pink and white. You and your hummingbirds can expect flowers spring, summer and fall on this one! This blazing beauty will grow in full sun in the Pacific Northwest but prefers partial shade in other regions. Excellent for the garden or in containers. Just be careful when planting Heuchera not to bury the crown. 




Landscape / Garden Uses

Growing in a low mounding form to 9 inches tall and 15 inches wide, Fire Chief Heuchera is ideal for use in in sunny to partially shaded garden beds or containers. Use it as an accent in smaller garden spaces or in groupings or massed in larger landscape borders. A fine addition to Heuchera gardens, woodland gardens, rock gardens and perennial shade gardens.

In garden beds or containers, we like to combine Heuchera plants with other Heuchera or Heucherella varieties, hosta lilies, perennial ferns and other part shade to shade loving plants and trees.

Suggested Spacing:  8 inches apart for mass plantings;  18 inches or more apart for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

When planted right, and in the right spot Heuchera are easy to grow. 

Sun Preference:  Though Heuchera tolerate full sun in cooler zones north of USDA Zone 7 they appreciate some afternoon shade in USDA Zones 7-9. If grown in full sun, consistent moisture is very important. Scorch and general foliage decline may occur if soils are allowed to dry out for too long. 

Soil Preferences:  Heuchera prefer a moist but well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy or wet soil is problematic. In the warmer climates of the southern zones plants are often evergreen, retaining nice foliage color throughout the winter season. In colder, northern zones foliage may discolor or die back over a harsh winter. Simply prune unsightly foliage away before new growth begins to emerge in late winter or early spring.
