Eggplant-purple foliage dusted with a light silver overlay and gray-green veining combines color and texture for dramatic artistic finesse. Taller white flowers ascend on slender dark stems.

Heuchera Northern Exposure Purple with its hardy richardsonii breeding is quite cold hardy and the foliage remains fresh and appealing late into the season. A great way to add large blocks of color in the shade is to combine several Coral Bells with their ever-expanding striking hues.

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.

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.
