    • I purchased 9 of these to frame our front beds. They were gorgeous the first season. Sadly, they all look mostly dead now. We are in Zone 7A or sometimes 6B. Hoping they rally the next month. Several have no leaves at all, but tiny purple starts at base, We followed all instructions, planted on North side of our home in a mostly shady area. Mulched this fall and amended with compost. Sad, this was a big purchase for us and so pretty. I have other varieties of Coral Bells that look really great. Sadly, wild berry my favorite looks very tough.

    • I bought several of these last summer at my local Home Depot. I'm not normally a fan of Heuchera, as I don't have luck with them. I was attracted to the stunning purple leaves, and they were my favorite all summer. I hosted a Garden Stroll for my Master Gardener group, and received rave reviews from the normally reserved plant fanatics!! I am hoping they will come back this Spring, as they were very robust plants.

    • L'heuchère Wildberry est une des plus belles plantes vivaces que j’ai cultivé. Même si j'ai planté cette plante en zone 3, elle survit et réapparaît avec des feuilles toujours aussi belles. Les seuls défauts sont que certaines feuilles perdent leur couleur et deviennent grises, surtout après les gels printaniers, mais moi je les coupe. De plus, en temps pluvieux, les limaces et escargots sont très attirés par la plante, mais il suffit de mettre un appât pour les éloigner. Wildberry heuchera is one of the most beautiful perennials I have grown. Even though I planted this plant in zone 3, it survives and reappears with leaves that are still just as beautiful. The only flaws are that some leaves lose their color and turn gray, especially after spring frosts, but I cut them. In addition, in rainy weather, slugs and snails are very attracted to the plant, but you only need to put bait to keep them away.

    • I planted 3 of these last year. I have about 20 coral bells and these coming back beautifully and are the nicest looking heuchera I have!!

    • Beautiful Wildberry Heuchera was doing really well but apparently the deer loved this plant more than I did and they ate the top off it. Hoping the plant survives and rebounds. Absolutely love heuchera's and plan on planting more of them!

    • Planted 2 on the West side of the house late Spring, they havent grown much and Ive yet to see any white flowers , though there are always very tiny purple ones . They only have direct Sun half of the day , and I water frequently , but this extreme heat and drought in IN has pretty much Fried the leaves , so be careful ._.Hope that they make it through.

    • I got one that had 3-4 mature sized leaves on it, but they were looking on the rough side. I planted it in a container with another variety of heuchera and an astilbe, and the wildberry has taken off! It adds such a beautiful purple tone to the deep green foliage I have in the container, and it has been growing like mad. I can't wait to see it when it adds it's blooms later in the season. I would definitely recommend this variety and plan on buying more for future landscaping projects!

    • I just got this heuchera this spring and the colour is gorgeous. The plant itself was enormous and looks like something that has been growing for a while.
