Heuchera Silver Scrolls

Alum root, Coral bells

Unusual silver veined leaves

A compact heuchera with stunning, rounded, lobed, silver leaves with deep purple veins, purple on the reverse. These are carried on purple stems, giving a lovely layered, reflective effect to the plant.   In summer wiry purple stems rise above the leaves, carrying tiny, white, bell-shaped flowers. These are light and airy above the shining leaves. A superb heuchera for all-year round foliage effect and colour in any garden. Perfect for patios, courtyards, balconies and small spaces.

Where?

Plant in full sun or semi-shade at the front of beds and borders, alongside paving or in gravel. Ideal for pots, containers, window boxes and hanging baskets.

How?

Any well-drained fertile soil. Remove flower stems after flowering to show off leaves. Remove dead or damaged foliage in winter. Cut back fleshy short stems of old plants to rejuvenate.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
