Heuchera villosa macrorrhiza 'Autumn Bride' (Hairy Alum Root)
A surprisingly hard to find plant considering how tough and useful it is. Low mounds of hairy, bold-textured leaves keep their powder dry until well into the fall when they are topped with delicate wands of white flowers. A fantastic ground cover for dry shade. Deer, drought, cold, you name it. This is a problem solver in just about any garden. The plants pictured are Heuchera villosa growing on the side of a rock cliff at Lake Cumberland. It is the perfect example of how tough they can be. There kryptonite though is heavy, wet clay soils. Put them in planters and watch them thrive.
