HEUCHERA JET BLACK (AMERICANA)
Startling, almost black, rounded foliage, some leaves having silvery metallic stripes, makes compact clumps from spring until winter. This is the darkest-leaved heuchera seedling we have ever grown, and unfortunately it produces very few seeds indeed, and variation may occur in the subsequent seedlings, the flower spikes being relatively insignificant sprays of pale pink flowers.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
