When its vibrant grape purple new foliage emerges with black veins in spring, you’ll easily be able to pick ‘Grape Expectations’ out from the crowd. The broad, thick and durable, somewhat fuzzy leaves form a dense, upright mound as opposed to the wide spreading form of ‘Blackberry Ice’. As the temperatures rise, the leaves develop a bright silver coating and then turn back to very deep purple in late fall. Creamy white flowers are produced on dark purple stems in midsummer.
- Partial Sun to Full sun and Partial Shade

- This plant is a Heuchera villosa hybrid. The H. villosa species is a robust, late blooming type that exhibits an increased tolerance of high heat and humidity over other species. H. villosa is native to the southeastern United States.
- Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape. Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers. Try cutting a few of the tall flower scapes for fresh bouquets.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
