Heuchera ‘Berry Smoothie’

Bold round leaves emerge in spring the color of, well, its namesake! Metallic rose-pink leaves have both H. villosa and H. americana blood, so heat tolerance is a given. For a tasty combo, combine it with cool-blue leaved hostas. Truly four seasons of foliage interest. An award winner!
