Heuchera 'Plum Pudding', is a dessert of rich purples and slight red hues, with silver marbling between the veins. This vigorous grower is popular where heat and humidity persist. A choice plant for growing underneath deciduous trees, in containers (best not to over-winter them), as a border plant, and in mass plantings. The flowers will attract bees and the occasional butterfly. Contrasts nicely with light color heucheras and many light colored flower blooms. Non-invasive.
