Click on the above links for Perennials, Shrubs, Trees, or Vines & Climbers for detailed information on each plant in the Heuchera Garden.
Heuchera Garden lies on the northeast corner of the Dane County UW Extension office building. This garden area has a range of light
conditions: part shade under the Betula
nigra (river birch), Alnus (alder) and Malus (ornamental crab) and full sun in
front of the Extension building sign on the corner. Heucheras were selected for
display throughout this garden since they grow in both sun and part shade
locations and offer beautiful, evergreen foliage in
a dramatic color range, in addition to attractive flowers. A footbridge off the northeast corner of the
building spans the wettest area of the garden where moisture loving plants like
Caltha palustris (marsh marigold) thrive. Over one-third (50) of the garden plantings are
spring blooming, including 10 spring blooming trees and shrubs.
