‘Silver Scrolls’ heuchera

Heuchera 'Silver Scrolls'

HEW-ker-ah Audio

Heucheras make excellent foliage plants for sun to part shade gardens. Most have flowers that 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 CharacteristicsClumps or mounds of heart-shaped, boldy veined leaves.  The flowers are white and borne in narrow panicles in spring.

CareGrow in fertile, well-drained soil in sun to part shade. The rootstalk tends to grow upwards, so mulch annually to keep covered. May need to lift and replant with the crown just above the soil.

PropagationSow seed in containers in spring. Divide in autumn.

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