Border basics

If flowers are the frills and highlights in the garden, then leaves are the main-stay fundamentals. By picking a variety of foliage types, you can add layers of interest even when the flowers are long gone. This Heuchera ‘Palace Purple’ is a good, simple, low-growing ground cover plant, easy to grow in the right conditions. It prefers a north-facing or dappled-shady, cool site. Pretty white flowers too. If growing in pots, watch for vine weevil larvae who love to eat the roots!
