I have several “Hairy Alumroot” plants in my garden. But I like to call them “Heuchera” as in “Hew-ker-ah” because Hairy Alumroot sounds like, well, who names a plant after its root characteristics anyway, if that is even how it got its name?
So I go with Hew-ker-ah, because of the genus name Heuchera.
This is Heuchera villosa ‘Caramel’, one of several new
Hairy Alumroot Heucheras growing in my garden.
Some day, I’ll post pictures of all of them – ‘Autumn Bride’, ‘Mocha’, ‘Citronella’.
Heuchera villosa is a native plant and someone or someone(s) are doing a great job of breeding new colors into it.
‘Caramel’ is my favorite.
(I also like chocolate covered caramels, but that has nothing to do with why I like this plant. It’s all about the leaf colors on this one!)
