Heuchera ‘Stainless Steel’

Summary

Heuchera ‘Stainless Steel’ has striking metallic silver leaves that fade to greenish silver during the summer months. ‘Stainless Steel’ had one of the most impressive floral displays in the entire trial. Large, creamy-white, bell-shaped flowers adorned numerous inflorescences. The inflorescences did become slightly floppy, but there were so many that the overall effect was still pleasing. When grown in full sun, ‘Stainless Steel’ experienced moderate burning and discoloration, and is thus recommended for part shade – full shade conditions.
