DESCRIPTION
Hairy Alumroot
Heuchera villosa 'Bronze Wave'

Heuchera villosa 'Bronze Wave' has shiny, almost lacquered looking bronze to red brown foliage. In early fall small whitish flowers hover above the foliage on long stems. It makes a lovely shade groundcover that can happily compete with tree roots and come out looking good. Big, 6-8" diameter bronze-purple leaves make this plant a bold presence in the garden and they serve as a backdrop for the long stems of pink flowers that rise above the foliage from May through July. Groupings give shady areas a shot of color and provide great critter cover!

BENEFITS
  • Outstanding foliage display
  • Nectar source for hummingbirds
  • Provides cover for small wildlife
  • Will grow in dry shade under hardwood trees
  • Great deer resistant edging plant or groundcover
