Beautiful plant. I am just starting a small flower bed (18ft long and only about 14inches wide) adjacent to a winding sidewalk. I have dwarf mondo grass and frosted violet coral bells. I need another perennial that will look great with the coral bells. What color and plant would you suggest? Orange? Pink? White?
Thank you for your help,

This one seems to need to be kept moist despite being in shade with morning sun.

Photos just don't do this Heuchera justice. I was shocked at how great looking it was when I came across it in a nursery. The leaves are slighltly textured, not as much as a "marmalade" but similar, and the shade of black-purple is different from most 'purple' heucheras I have seen. The metalic frosting on the surface of the leaves really shows.

'Frosted Violet' has foliage to about 12" and flowers to about 30". The new leaves are an unusual and beautiful violet-pink color, fading to bronze-green in summer. In winter the foliage turns dark bluish-violet. The flowers are like pink seed pearls; plants bloom late spring to late summer.
