Eye-catching and compact, Heuchera 'Plum Pudding' is a particularly interesting variety of Coral Bells with its shiny, silvery, plum-purple foliage of deeply cut, rounded, ruffled leaves. The pretty leaves are adorned with dark-purple veins and undersides and combine extremely well with other shade loving plants in a wide range of colors.
- In late spring to early summer, masses of small, bell-shaped, creamy-white flowers bloom on strong purple spikes rising up to 26 in. (65 cm) above the semi-evergreen foliage. This Heuchera is prized by gardeners for its drought, heat and humidity tolerance.
- This clump-forming perennial forms basal mounds, up to 8 in. tall (20 cm) with a spread of 12-16 in. (30-40 cm).
- This sturdy performer is not only easy to grow, but also requires little maintenance and is virtually 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. Thrives in dry shade, once established. It is attractive to butterflies and often ignored by deer.
- A spectacular addition to beds, borders, rock gardens, woodland gardens and is ideal as 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.
