alumroot, coral bells
Rounded, metallic silver leaves are bordered and veined with deep wine red. Flowers are tiny, white, tinged with pink blooming profusely in the spring. Very trim and tidy habit, forming a neat mound. Remains vigorous and attractive even through the fall and winter. Exceptionally vigorous in a gallon pot! A Prodigious intro from our friends at Primrose Path.
hairy alumroot, 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.
A truly low-maintenance shade native that thrives in a woodland garden, Elizabeth Oliver is a beautiful selection with a tidy clumping habit, striking red streaked leaves and delicate flowers tinged with pink. A good groundcover and a Primrose Path introduction via Charles Oliver.
