Heuchera ‘Delta Dawn’

'Delta Dawn' has large, round leaves with red centers in the spring and fall; in summer its red veins run like rivers to the sea. The gorgeous gold to lime main leaf color highlights the venation. Strong, vigorous habit. Perfect for a shade container or to add color to a dark area. Delivers the “look” that Heuchera 'Miracle' promised.
