Heuchera ‘Chocolate Ruffles’

Heavily ruffled leaves of rich chocolate on top and deep burgundy on the bottom create a warm contrast of color. Thousands of small purplish flowers on strong purple spikes continue the show. One of our first and finest, and still in amazing demand, this heat/humidity tolerant Heuchera thrives in gardens across the country and has become a landscaper's staple.
