Heuchera villosa (Hairy Alumroot)
Although Hairy Alumroot’s native* habitat in Virginia is mostly in the southwestern mountains (it is not native to NoVA), its five-inch wide, semi-evergreen leaves and late-season flower plumes make it a species worthy of consideration for a woodland garden. There also are many fine cultivars of this species available.
*In the Mid-Atlantic Region, it is not native to DE, PA, or NoVA.
