In the 2012-2014 Mt. Cuba Center foliage Heuchera performance evaluations, it was listed as one of the top 10 (out of 83).

The flowers are tiny and not colorful, but are produced in great numbers. The effect is like the flowering of a grass: a numinous cloud. Bloom season is August through October.

The foliage is deer-resistant and nearly evergreen.

This is a very sturdy fast growing Heuchera. This one doesn't seem to be bothered by any pests. It's leaves retain their healthy form in all 3 seasons. It blooms continuously for almost 2 months. A great addition to any shady or part sun garden.
