I'm looking for ideas for an edging plant instead of Box to edge an informal cottage garden style flower bed. I want it to give shape to the garden in winter (same as Box) but not need clipping. Just occurred to me that Heuchera might work. What does anyone else think.

I've put about 10 feet of it in as edging. It's looking fine so far. (It's only in a couple of months.)

Heuchera prefers shade and doesn't like dry at all.
