Heuchera ‘Black Taffeta’

Black Taffeta

My favorite Heuchera, ‘ Black Taffeta’ , is a charming mound of large, glossy, densely  ruffled, boarding on black leaves. Sprinkles of pink flowers emerge in spring. Great vigor. If you live in a region that gets very warm it is best to plant this in  part to full shade. Great for containers, Landscape edging and mixed borders. Prefers dryer soil. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Excellent as a  border or edging plant. Foliage should not be trimmed back in the fall, but this coral bell may be cleaned up in the spring by removing any withered or tired-looking leaves.  Compared to ‘Chocolate Ruffles’ it has darker, shinier leaves,  Compared to ‘Midnight Ruffles’ it is glossier with a browner tone in the winter.  Heat and humidity tolerant which makes it a good plant in the Deep South.  Drought tolerant
