'Sugar Frosting' is a great Heuchera for growing in a semi-shaded border or container along with other plants. The foliage of this Heuchera can vary with the seasons. new growth on my own plant (UK) is pink with a metallic veining. Later in the season the pink becomes more intense and gradually, as the leaf ages it turns a deep burgundy, still with the metallic sheen. The flowers are cream, and although the plant is grown more for it's foliage, as with all Heuchera flowers, the bees and insects love them. I've noticed lots of Honeybees visiting mine when in bloom.
