Heuchera americana 'Dale's Strain'

Common name alum root
Family saxifragaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers greenish white
Size 10"
Light part shade
Cultural notes prefers rich moist soil, but can adapt to dry, poorer soils

Grown for its evergreen foliage: intricately patterned silver-and-green leaves, turning orange in fall through winter.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
