Heuchera's happiest customer

I never thought of heuchera as a plant for window boxes, but a reader emailed this morning to tell me that and something else: "And a true joy of heuchera besides using them in window boxes, is that deer don't eat them!"

Like some humans I know, deer will eat anything if desperate enough, but it's great to know that heuchera - otherwise known as coral bells ... see story in today's paper - isn't their number one choice. And how nice does this window box look? Talk about easy.
