Heuchera ‘Midnight Ruffles’

Our RUFFLES™ series have H. villosa breeding which gives them a larger leaf and plant size, better heat and humidity tolerance, as well as good cold-tolerance. Vigorous is the word! 'Midnight Ruffles' has large, very ruffled, red brown to almost black leaves. The shiny foliage with its crisply ruffled leaves shows its purple backs, which are delightful to view. Great in full sun in Oregon.
