Heuchera 'Obsidian'

Most members of this genus are grown for their foliage, and there is a huge range of varieties with exotic coloured leaves. They make great ground cover, or can be used to soften the edges of paths. See also the closely related Tiarella, and x Heucherella, which are hybrids of Heuchera and Tiarella.

Heuchera 'Obsidian' is one of the best new introductions. It has glossy, dark maroon, almost black leaves, which keep their colour all year round, a wonderful contrast to the white bell-shaped flowers. It looks great in a container or at the front of the border, and also provides good ground cover if left.
