Hairy alumroot Interesting Notes

Large, golden-caramel foliage with red undersides. Has excellent coloring and is also a very strong grower with good heat tolerance. Cream flowers, up to 24 in. (60 cm), appear in the Spring. Bred to combine strength and color by crossing more robust species such as villosa hybrids, Beat the Heat is the best of the best. These unique Heuchera varieties exhibit a broad range of foliage colors to enhance and bring contrast to the garden. They stand up to heat and humidity much better than their garden predecessors. - Darwin Perennials
