Soil   Medium, well-drained
Flower color   White
Bloom Time   June - July
Height   12 in

General Culture:
Best grown in organically rich, humusy, medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. In cold winter climates, a winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving. ‘Citronelle’ is considered to be more tolerant of hot and humid summers than most other heucheras.

Noteworthy Characteristics:
‘Citronelle’ is a vigorous, clump-forming, compact coral bells cultivar that features yellow-green leaves on rosy red petioles. It was discovered as a naturally occurring sport of Heuchera ‘Caramel’ in a nursery bed in Hantay, France in July of 2002. Tiny, creamy white flowers appear in spires in summer (later than most heucheras) on slender stems rising above the foliage mound, typically to 10-12” tall. It is the foliage (not the flowers) that distinguishes this plant. U. S. Plant Patent PP17,934 was issued August 21, 2007.
No serious insect or disease problems.
Mass as a ground cover or group. Rock gardens, borders and open woodland gardens. Effective as an edger along paths or walkways.
