Heuchera americana 'Dale's Strain' (Saxifragaceae)
(HEW-ker-a a-mer-i-CANE-ah)
American Alumroot

Selected by Dale Hendricks from a wild population he found in the mountains of NC. This seed grown strain has been in the trade for several years, yet has perhaps been overlooked during the deluge of Heuchera cultivars that hit the market in the mid '90's. Very shade and drought tolerant, 'Dale's Strain' offers green foliage heavily veined with silver and bronze. Lovely combined with purple Heucheras, or next to Japanese Painted Ferns, 'Blue Moon' Woodland Phlox, Dicentra eximia, or other woodland favorites.
