Heuchera Palace Purple

Another Aldi bargain today. A Heuchera plant reduced from £1.49 to 49p. The variety is Palace Purple. Sprays of salmon pink flowers appear above mounds of large dark burgundy leaves. Heuchera is grown mainly for its foliage. It is semi evergreen and will thrive in dappled shade. Keep soil slightly moist. Tidy them up in autumn. Lift and divide clumps every couple of years in early autumn and replant with the crown just above the surface of the soil. Apply 2-3 inches of mulch around the crown of the plant in spring.

I now have three of these as Deb and Sean brought me two the last time they came. The two they brought are in pots but this one is in the ground.
