Heuchera ‘Blackout’

Fancy-leaf Coral Bells

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.266.300

An exceptionally good, dark-leaved introduction from Dirk Scheys of Belgium. This forms a low mound of large and gently-lobed leaves of deep charcoal black with a smooth and shiny surface. Taller sprays of ivory-white flowers appear in early summer. Excellent vigour, good tolerance of heat as well as sun or shade, traits which make this almost a “grow anywhere” sort of perennial. Trim off any winter-burned leaves in early spring. USPP#20613: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
