Yet another beautiful Heuchera that will be all mine this Spring.

This Heuchera is grown from seed, many will love the ideal of growing their own , but having a finished plant will give you  a much clearer headstart and produce fast gratification.

One thing special about Marvelous Marble is that the color changes throughout the season.. What a great feature!

During the Spring months, the new foliage starts out as purple color. As the season moves on , the foliage changes to deep green with reddish purple veining  and an added feature is a light silver overlay.

Bears short creamy white flowers , and blooms a little earlier than other Heucheras.

Grow in a sun to partial shade area as you would with most Heuchera.

Grows 8-12 inches with a 16 inch spread,  and is Hardy in zones 4-9.

Heuchera’s are so loved for their foliage , if you haven’t had them in your landscape they are a must have. Relatively easy to grow and maintain.

Heuchera is one of my ultimate favorite perennials here in Iowa. I have several varieties now and will keep adding as long as I don’t run out of room.

Happy Gardening
