‘Buttered Rum’ Heucherella

X Heucherella 'Buttered Rum' PP25040

Caramel-dipped, deeply-cut maple leaves adorn this aptly named plant from spring to summer. In fall, the cool weather burnishes the leaves to a lovely rose red - a perfect complement to fall-planted containers. Grows into a medium sized mound that's perfect in the landscape. Try it in a vertical planting with contrasting purple-leaved varieties of Heuchera.
