'Silver Scrolls' heuchera (Heuchera 'Silver Scrolls')
HEW-ker-ah
Genus:  Heuchera
Heucheras make excellent foliage plants for sun to part shade gardens. Most flowers are not as impressive as the foliage, but they do add a second level of interest. 'Silver Scrolls' heuchera's leaves are burgundy overlaid with silver and withstand even hot summers, unlike many other silver plants. It grows up to 2 feet tall and 1 foot wide.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Clumps or mounds of heart-shaped, boldy veined leaves.  The flowers are white and borne in narrow panicles in spring.
Care:  Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in sun to part shade. The rootstalk tends to grow upwards, so mulch annualy to keep covered. May need to lift and replant with the crown just above the soil.
Propagation: 

Sow seed in containers in spring. Divide in autumn.

Problems: 

Foliar nematodes, rust, powdery mildew, and leaf spots.
