Heuchera 'Stainless Steel' (Coral Bells)
Heuchera 'Stainless Steel', is a neat metallic sheened heuchera. In spring this guy sends up bright silver leaves with slight green veining. As the temperature increases the leaves become more variegated looking, as the veins get wider giving the leaves a minty green appearance. Also, during this transition blooming stalks are formed with multiple inflorescences of pure white. In the coolness of fall and winter the foliage takes on a rose-tinted hue. Like all heucheras, 'Stainless Steel', offers 365 days of color. A great choice for planting under deciduous trees in small groups or en masse.
