Heuchera 'Grape Expectations'

Heuchera 'Grape Expectations' (Starter TC)



Leaves emerge dark purple in spring, gradually add silver veiling in summer (when temperatures rise) and finish the autumn dark purple with black veins. Thick, fuzzy leaves in a compact mound 12 inches high. Villosa heritage means more heat and humidity tolerance! Great in containers, and can be used for cut flowers! White/cream flowers in midsummer.
