Heuchera ‘Shanghai’

Tight mounds of silvery-purple leaves set forth white flowers on dark stems. ‘Shanghai’ had the best foliage through the worst winter in the last 40 years at the TERRA NOVA® test gardens. Ice, snow and rain didn’t faze it! As Shanghai is a beacon to China, so Heuchera ‘Shanghai’ can be an inviting beacon of metallic silver to your garden. Reblooms all summer.
