Heuchera villosa f. purpurea 'Bronze Wave' (Hairy alumroot)

Heuchera villosa f. purpurea 'Bronze Wave'

Hairy alumroot or coral bells

A superb intro from Charles Oliver of the Primrose Path, this is a native late-flowering groundcover. This has much shinier, almost lacquered looking foliage vs. H. villosa 'Purpurea'. Like its cousin 'Autumn Bride', 'Bronze Wave' is sturdy, perhaps an 18", or a bit larger, clump. September-October flowering spikes of small tan flowers. Excellent shade groundcover that can happily compete with tree roots and come out looking good.
