Vigorous and reliable, Heuchera 'Black Taffeta' features large, glossy, heavily ruffled, silky black leaves. In late spring to early summer, panicles of small, bell-shaped, pink flowers bloom on slender white stems rising up to 21 in. (22 cm), well above the evergreen foliage. Perfect to create a striking statement in the rock garden, perennial border, along paths or in containers.

  • This clump-forming perennial forms basal mounds, up to 12 in. tall (30 cm) with a spread of 15 in. (37 cm). This sturdy performer is not only easy to grow, but also requires little maintenance and is pest and disease free!
  • Performs best in part shade, in rich, humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils. If grown in full sun, make sure the soil remains consistently moist or the foliage might decline. 
  • It is attractive to butterflies and often ignored by deer.
  • A spectacular addition to beds, borders, rock gardens, woodland gardens and is ideal as a groundcover, edger along paths or in containers. Fabulous when planted in groups!
  • Divide clumps in spring every 3-4 years.
  • Remove stems of faded flowers to promote additional bloom. Apply winter mulch after the ground freezes to help prevent root heaving.
