Heuchera ‘Black Forest Cake’
New! Smooth, dark chocolatey foliage topped with bright cherry-red flowers. What's not to like? Excellent habit and showy flowers are a great addition to any perennial foliage lineup. Medium sized plant that's great in containers and garden beds. 'Black Forest Cake' is sure to become a best seller with its vivid flower color and deep purple leaves that look beautiful year-round. Another excellent Heuchera from world renowned plant breeder, TERRA NOVA® Nurseries.
- Thrives in "dry shade", excellent ground cover under trees. Prepare the planting area well with organic matter if soil is poor. A few hours of morning sun is fine but avoid hot, intense afternoon sun, especially in the south. (This is a general rule for all Heucheras)
- 2 ft tall x 2 feet wide. Evergreen, except in coldest zones where they go dormant in winter.
