Heuchera americana / Alumroot


A hardy wildflower, known to grow from cracks in rocky bluffs and in dry woods. Mounding form creates a slow-spreading groundcover. Uniquely patterned leaves can persist through the winter.

Alumroot’s highly astringent roots have been used medicinally, and also as a substitute for alum as a mordant in dyeing.
