Airy sprays of tiny pale pink summer flowers appear on wiry stems above rosettes of silver dusted plum purple leaves. Like most Heuchera this variety is grown mainly for its distinctive foliage and its marbled leaves look fantastic planted in large drifts and contrasted with other foliage plants. It is semi-evergreen and makes an eyecatching front-of-border plant in sun or in dappled shade.

  • Garden care: Heucheras do not like dry soil. Remove tatty foliage in autumn. Lift and divide clumps every couple of years in early autumn and replant with the crown just above the surface of the soil. Apply a generous 5-7 cm (2-3 in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the crown of the plant in spring.
