Heuchera americana "Dale's Strain"
Originally uploaded by Taiga the Fox
This Heuchera has amazingly green foliage heavily veined with silver and bronze. Selected by Dale Hendricks from a wild population he found in the mountains of North Carolina. The small blooms are white, but are hardly visible because of the striking marbled foliage.
I got mine as a really small seedling from some lovely person I met through a garden chat 4 years ago.
It has taken some time to grow, but during this summer the plant finally was big enough making a lovely combination with Heuchera 'Palace Purple'.
Exposure: Very shade and drought tolerant
Hardiness: Hardy in USDA zones 4-7
Noteworthy characteristics: Attracts bees.
