Heuchera Palace Purple
This coral bells cultivar is a clump-forming perennial which features a basal mound (typically to 12" tall) of maple- or ivy-like long-petioled leaves (3-5" wide) which are an attractive deep purple above and beet-red beneath. Foliage color may fade to a bronze-green in hot summers. Tiny, pinkish white, bell-shaped flowers in open, airy panicles are borne on slender, wiry, dark red stems extending well above the mound of leaves, typically to a height of 15-24" in late spring to early summer. 1991 Perennial Plant of the Year.
