Buttered Rum Heucherella

Heucherella x 'Buttered Rum' PP #25,040

As if dipped in caramel, the foliage on this compact perennial sweetens the landscape and containers. It becomes the perfect complement to fall-plantings when the maple-like leaves mature to rose-red. Try planting it with contrasting purple-leaved heuchera for non-stop color.
