Shiny Black Spot
The Coral Bells Obsidian, Heuchera ‘Obsidian’ (PP14,836), with its jet black, smooth round leaves, has the darkest foliage to date of the Coral Bells; closer to true black than any other Heuchera.
This wonderful deep purplish-black foliage also has a polished glassy luster! In early summer, 24” smoky purple buds appear on tall shoots and then open to cream colored flowers.
Pair the Obsidian with Coral Bells Lime Ricky or Marmalade for a fantastic color contrast!
Coral Bells are grown more for their foliage color but the small blooms that they contain will attract hummingbirds. Like most Coral Bells, Obsidian’ thrives in partial sunlight but once established it will also grow in shade.
Use this coral bell as a ground cover, in rock gardens, as a border plant or as an edging along paths and walkways. This 12” mounded plant will set off perfectly any bright flower in the garden or a container!
Cold and drought tolerant and withstanding heat and humidity, nothing seems to phase this plant. But to keep ‘Obsidian’ looking its best, be sure to water in hot, dry weather, giving the plant about one inch of water per week; divide clumps in fall.
Heuchera adds a bit of flavor to any perennial garden with its texture, vigor, and vibrant color. Attracting butterflies and hummingbirds, ‘Obsidian’ will surely become a “must have” as it contrasts dramatically with brighter colors in your garden!
