Heuchera ‘Lime Ruffles’
Looks just like the name – a vigorous mound with very large and ruffled lime green leaves with a frosty white overlay. 'Lime Ruffles' was bred using some Heuchera villosa and therefore it has larger leaves and should show more heat tolerance. Makes a medium to large rounded mound. It will take full sun in the Pacific Northwest. Attractive white flowers in fall on medium spikes.
