Lipstick (or is it Paris)? Either way, great flowers

I know we all say we like foliage for those shady location but it is nice to have both. This heuchera has had these reblooming dark pink flowers since spring. It is a great heuchera for on going flowering. This plant gets no direct sun and lots of shade.

Those are nice flowers - and so very missing on the majority of the new hybrids. The leaves are OK, but I would probably grow this one for the flowers alone.

Beautiful flowers! Does it attract humming birds?

'fran', I have so many different plants in our garden but I am disappointed to say that I don't ever recall seeing any hummingbird feeding on our perennials :(.

Heuchera 'Rave On' is a little darker, more robust in my experience, and also blooms for a long time with similar flowers.

Wow! I love it. I want something just like that to replace my 'Venus' heuchera with it's weed-like flowers. Thanks for sharing Rouge! (and for expanding on it, Boday.)

I have both 'Paris' and 'Rave On', in one flower bed. It was going to be concentric gradations of color, ending in Obsidian in the center. Hah! Insert reality check here, mumble mumble.

Each spring some weaker member is gone into the Great Beyond and there is a mad scramble to fill in the hole. Now it's more freeform

UPDATE

I do like heuchera "Havana". It stands out well in deeper shade with its very light green leaves and the many pink flower stalks last for weeks and weeks.
