History:
Heuchera is an herbaceous perennial native to North America. The genus was named after 18th century German physician, Johann Heinrich von Heucher (1677-1746). With a slightly sour taste, the leaves are edible and can be used in salads and sandwiches. Native Americans have used the root to treat inflammation, swelling and minor bleeding.
