Properties and uses:
The Heuchera 'Obsidian has superb purplish-grey- foliage which enhances its violet veins. It forms a thick, ground- covering cushion and it is enhanced by a cloud of small flowers in June-July. Grow it in flowering beds with other Heucheras or again with ornamental grasses for a more graphic effect.
As a rule we require 6 Heucheras per m². At the end of winter, it is necessary to cut back its foliage so as to encourage the appearance of numerous new leaves.
