Yes, we all want flowers whenever and wherever we can get them, but don’t forget that foliage plants are your stalwart garden workhorses. With this knockout heuchera, you get the best of both worlds. ‘Magma’ delivers with airy pink blossoms on 30-inch stems in early summer, but the real wow factor is its leaves. You get at least three seasons of gorgeous foliage, which emerges in spring in hues of bright pink-purple and ages to a stunning deep burgundy red. If you garden in a warmer climate, you get to enjoy this plant year-round—‘Magma’ is evergreen. Put this perennial front and center in the border and in containers where it can serve as the backbone for infinite color contrasting and echoing combos.
