Heuchera sanguinea x ‘Sugar Plum’
Heuchera ‘Sugar Plum’ is a standout plant, forming a nice mound of evergreen foliage with a unique frosty plum colour. The leaves are slightly ruffled and have a lightly glossy finish that catches the light.
In summer and winter, the leaves take on a more silvery appearance that is quite attractive. These attributes give this plant a textured, changing look that adds interest all year round. ‘Sugar Plum’ also provides an excellent backdrop for other plants, with the foliage providing great contrast.
In the spring and summer, small silvery pink flowers appear on tall red stems that rise 60 cm above the ground. These flowers are delicate and airy, and they add a touch of elegance to the garden. The frequently re-blooming flowers also attract small pollinators.
Heuchera ‘Sugar Plum’ is easy to care for, and it prefers full sun or part shade, and moderately well-drained soil. It is a great choice for borders and rock gardens. It is also hardy and fairly dry-tolerant, withstanding cold winter temperatures very well and making a good option for low water gardens.
Overall, Heuchera ‘Sugar Plum’ is an excellent choice for gardeners who want a low-maintenance plant with enchanting foliage and delicate flowers.
