Grape Expectations does what Heuchera (also known as Coral Bells) does best—stands out in the shade garden with unusually colored foliage. And then tall white flower spikes appear in midsummer and draw butterflies and pollinators in—setting the scene in a woodland garden. Heuchera is often used as a unique foliage filler in mixed containers, but this easy to grow perennial has a lot of benefits for the garden too. Planted alongside a walkway, it'll grab attention and show you where to walk, plus it's pretty salt tolerant so it'll survive a little run off if you have to salt the path in winter. Or if winters are mild where you live, it'll perform as an evergreen perennial. Struggling to find something for under a Black Walnut Tree? This is resistant to the toxin, so it'll fill in nicely there. It stands out in a rock garden too. Deer hardly ever eat heuchera. Heuchera 'Grape Expectations' PP26894
