Description

Big Lily Pad Leaves Turn from Deep Pink to Rich Purple

Among the very brightest shades of pinkish-maroon, the brilliant foliage of Heuchera 'Berry Smoothie' is topped by white flowers in summer and stands up well to almost any adversity—in sun or shade.

Few plants boast the versatility and multi-season beauty of this heuchera. The spring foliage emerges large and lobed, sort of lily pad shaped, and bursting with brilliant raspberry tones. It keeps this eye-catching hue until the heat of summer, at which point it becomes more boysenberry—a little more lilac in the mix. But the purple color lasts all season and into fall, staying fresh and vibrant until frost.

Early summer also brings bell-shaped blooms, held in clusters on tall, slender stems high above the foliage. These blooms bring butterflies and hummingbirds on the wing, and last a long time. They complement the red tones of the foliage perfectly.

Like all heuchera, Heuchera 'Berry Smoothie' is very garden-tough, ready to put up with heat, humidity, drought, and poor soil. Deer and other nibbling animals tend to leave it alone, and pests and diseases are few. Best of all, this perennial thrives in sun or shade. How many plants can we say that about? Add Heuchera 'Berry Smoothie' to your landscape this season.
