|Design Ideas||This high contrast purple red foliage is exceptional for shaded mixed borders that tend to be all too green in color. Use in small irregular groups for the woodland garden or naturalistic settings. In more formal settings use as a mass focal point or as linear edging. It is excellent in front where plants are viewed up close for both foliage and flowers. Good plant for nestling landscape boulders or to round the base of pedestal or fountain. Excellent candidate for pots and troughs, even north facing window boxes as foliage accent or delicate flower spikes.|

Create a color foliage bed with others of its kind with Marmalade Coral Bells, (Heuchera x 'Marmalade'), Lime Rickey Coral Bells, (Heuchera x 'Lime Rickey') and metallic Silver Scrolls Coral Bells, (Heuchera x 'Silver Scrolls')|
|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide part shade in hot summer climates. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.|
|Lore||Native Americans used these thick roots for a medicinal by drying and then pounding them into a wound dressing, hence the common name, alum root.|
