Heuchera 'Bronze Wave'
Tolerates heat & humidity
Heuchera villosa 'Bronze Wave'. This 2001 Primrose Path introduction is a superb selection of the US native (NY south to AL), H. villosa f. purpurea. Each massive 18" tall x 2' wide clump is composed of very hairy, large, 8" wide, dark bronze leaves with a contrasting purple back. In late summer, the 2' tall flower spikes are laden with small whitish-pink flowers. This is not a seed strain, as has been the case in the past with most purple leaf forms of H. villosa.
This plant is a Heuchera villosa hybrid. The villosa species is a robust grower with an increased tolerance of high heat and humidity over other species. Most villosas produce flowers in midsummer, though they are usually grown more for their fantastic foliage. H. villosa is native to the southeastern United States. If you live in the south this plant is a great choice for your garden!
