Heuchera 'Jade Gloss' (PP#13,137) is a 2001
introduction from The Primrose Path. It is a small to mid size variety
that has become very popular in Europe.
- A dense mound 6" X 12" with sturdy erect flower stems to 18".
- The leaves are almost entirely glossy silver with a dark
green tracery of veins. The undersides of the leaves are dark
red-purple, and since the leaves tend to be slightly cupped, this
contrasts nicely with the coloration of the upper side. In bright sun the upper sides of the leaves become
suffused with red during the summer. The leaves are very weather
resistant and the bright color lasts through the winter (below).
- In late spring and on into summer 'Jade Gloss'
has stems of showy pale pink flowers from pink buds.
Features - Heuchera 'Jade Gloss' remains compact in the
garden. Because of its size and upright flower stems, it is an
excellent variety for container grower or for the front of a perennial bed.
