Fire Chief Heuchera

Heuchera x 'Fire Chief' PP #21,880

SKU
05491
Fantastic wine-red foliage matures with maroon markings, adding fantastic color towards the front of the border. Dark red stems produce lovely sprays of small white and pink bell-shaped flowers above neat mounds of foliage over a long season. This shade loving perennial will tolerate more sun than others in cool summer areas.
