Heuchera richardsonnii

Common name: Prairie Alumroot

Native plant

Attractive foliage and drought tolerance makes Prairie Alumroot a great choice for gardens with sandy or rocky, dry soils.  Prefers full sun but can develop some leaf scorch during the hot, dry summer months.  Flowering stalks reach heights of 1 to 3 feet and produce bell shaped, cream to light green flowers that are rather inconspicuous.  If planted in clusters or rows, this plant makes a great ground cover or boarder.
