Black Beauty



The Black Beauty Heuchera is a robust plant that is mainly grown for its luscious rich purple foliage that maintains its vibrant color year-round. In late summer to early fall, small clusters of tiny whiteish-purple blooms tower above the dense foliage and are attractive to pollinators. At maturity this plant can grow to measure 1 to 2 feet tall and wide. The ideal growing conditions of the Black Beauty are moist well-draining loamy soil, with partial to full sunlight, and adequate watering, letting the top layer of soil dry out between waterings. For optimal productivity, dividing the plant every few years is recommended, along with propagation by division and removing old foliage in the fall. The Black Beauty has hardiness zones from 4 to 9.
