    A Gem of a Plant

    Named for the black volcanic gemstone, Obsidian Heuchera (Heuchera 'Obsidian') has dramatic leaves of deep purplish-black that are unrivaled in the garden. Heucheras are commonly called "Coral Bells" because of the flower color and shape of the original plants. But plant breeders have created a much more diverse palette of colors for the flowers as well as the leaves in newer heuchera cultivars. The smoldering purplish-black leaves of Obsidian Heuchera are the perfect backdrop for the dainty, white, bell-shaped flowers that bloom along 2-foot-tall stems. If you're looking for a striking new accent for your garden, Obsidian Heuchera will not disappoint.

    Selecting the Perfect Garden Spot
    • Ideally, Obsidian Heuchera enjoys sun on its leaves for part of the day, but it will appreciate shade from the harsh afternoon sun, particularly in the sunny South.
    • Well-draining soil is a must for heucheras, because their crowns can rot if the plants sit in waterlogged soil. Plant in raised beds or containers if the soil in your intended garden spot stays a bit too wet. Think moist - but not soggy - soil.
    • Obsidian Heuchera is beautiful when used as a border plant for a sidewalk or patio.

    Design Tips
    Heuchera plants fall in the category of "botanical collectibles," because after you've grown one type, you'll want to keep adding to your collection!

    • Heucheras naturally grow in a tidy clump, so use their rounded shape to add softness to your garden design.
    • Instead of a single plant left to stand alone, place odd-numbered groupings together - three, five or seven plants - to form a rounded or staggered planting that maximizes this plant's design appeal.
    • Mix and match different types of heucheras with contrasting foliage; for example, plant Obsidian Heuchera (purplish-black leaves) with our Caramel (buttery caramel leaves) and Peach FlambĂ© (peach and red leaves) cultivars for dynamic visual impact.
    • Each flower stalk has masses of blossoms, which you can cut and bring inside to fill your favorite vase.

    The Dinner Bell Rings for Hummingbirds
    Be sure and position some plants where you'll be able to see them from your favorite sitting area. You don't want to miss the show when Obsidian Heuchera beckons hummingbirds - they love feeding on the bell-shaped flowers!
