Glossy, Ruffled Foliage
Waxy deep-black, scalloped foliage appears as though a glossy finish was recently applied. Incredibly dense, the ruffles twist to reveal rosy-purple undersides. A summer rain heightens its beauty as beaded raindrops glisten like diamonds against the dark foliage. A Proven Winner® Perennial of the Year. Primo! Heuchera Black Pearl is a villosa hybrid. Villosa species exhibit an increased tolerance to high heat and humidity over other Heuchera species. Airy white flower sprays are held on pink stems and cradled with pink calyxes. Coral Bells are easy to grow, often used as edgers and flower scapes are perfect accents for fresh bouquets.

Heuchera General Information

Heuchera make excellent border plants with their nearly evergreen foliage in neat clumps. Dainty flowers are held aloft on airy stems May through July. These versatile perennials can be used in a shady courtyard pot or as a groundcover under deciduous trees. Prefers average to moist soil conditions. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Heuchera Plant Care

Benefits from deadheading. Watch for frost heaving - mulch can help. In cold climates, winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving. It keeps the mature crown in contact with the soil and keeps the soil moist in the summer as well. Must have good drainage over the winter, though, so don't over-do the overwintering mulching. Shear off any damaged leaves in early spring to make room for new foliage. Can be divided every 3 years in spring.
