The foliage of 'Quilter's Joy' has crisply defined silver markings on a purple-bronze bckground. The foliage is more sun-resistant than most other purple-leaved Heucheras, and
it makes a 10" mound. This plant received an RHS Award of Merit in 2002. It is almost being marketed under the incorrect name 'Checkers.'
