Heuchera 'Shanghai'

Availability: Out of stock

Silvery purple leaves, and re-blooms all summer! Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape. Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers.


NOTE: be careful not to bury the crowns when planting.

Striking plum-purple colors! Review by Jolene
Shanghai is a beautiful heuchera in shades of plum-purple. I've been purchasing heuchera and hostas from Hostas Direct for years and I'm always happy with their plants! They have an amazing selection! (Posted on May 18, 2015)
