Palace Purple Heuchera

Heuchera micrantha ‘Palace Purple’ 



Gardeners who want to shake up their yards with color will find what they’re looking for in the Palace Purple Heuchera. With foliage ranging from olive green to rich plum – sometimes on the same leaf – this perennial is an all-time favorite! The Palace Purple Heuchera is particularly eye-catching in the spring, when it sprouts small white, bell-shaped flowers that stand out against its darker leaves. Pink stems add noteworthy contrast. 

The low-growing Palace Purple Heuchera is ideal for creating borders or as an edging plant, especially when it comes to adding variety to single-color areas. Consider planting the Palace Purple under slightly taller bushes or shrubs, as it does well in some shade. The Palace Purple is an easy-care plant if you take a few simple steps. Though it can thrive in the sun, the shrub prefers a shady spot to prevent color fading in warmer climates. It also requires rich soil and regular watering to thrive.

Choose a spot in your yard or a container with rich soil to plant your Palace Purple. The shrub does well in partially shady areas, especially if you live in a hotter place.  


The Palace Purple requires at least weekly watering. If you live in a hot climate or plant your shrub in a container, you may need to water it more than once a week. Shrubs planted in full sun require more water as well.    


You don’t need to fertilize your Palace Purple, but you can if it isn’t growing properly. Choose a 5-10-5 fertilizer to apply in the spring.  


Remove dead or damaged foliage and flowers after they wilt and to encourage new growth.
