HEUCHERA 'Palace Purple'

Coral Bells

In comparison to most other Heuchera, 'Palace Purple' has very large, shiny leaves. Ranging in color from deep olive green to purplish-bronze, their undersides, which are quite visible in the loosely formed clumps, are a striking metallic amethyst purple. 20" tall, leafed flower scapes bear an abundance of tiny cream flowers and elevate 'Palace Purple' from simply gorgeous to outstanding! 1991 Perennial Plant Association Plant of the Year.

With their neat and colorful foliage, Heuchera make excellent border plants. Dainty flowers are held aloft on airy stems in May through July. The flowers add a touch of whimsy to the plant, but with Heuchera, the evergreen foliage is the star. Equally beautiful when used in a shady courtyard pot or as a ground cover under deciduous trees, Generally low-maintenance, Heuchera prefers average to moist soil conditions. Frost heaving is a concern, but mulch can help as it keeps the mature crown in contact with the soil. Good drainage over winter is a must, so be careful not to over-do the winter mulching. Damaged leaves can be sheared off in early spring to make room for new foliage. Can be divided every 3 years in spring.

We ship larger plants than most leading mailorder nurseries. Ours are two year old plants in 5 1/4" containers.

A gardener from Glenview, IL (Zone 5)

For me, this is a dark-colored heuchera, and can offer good contrast with plants that have green leaves. It is so brown that is can "disappear" into the soil, so to speak...so is best placed alongside other colors. It will grow well in shade with almost no care.
