Heuchera villosa is a low mounding evergreen wildflower with light green maple-like foliage tinted with bronze or purple.  Plants thrive in moist rich woods in shade to part sun and are native to New York.   Its late summer, early fall flowers are displayed on rust colored stalks.   It’s a low spreading plant that works well as ground cover.  Attracts hummingbirds and bees for its nectar.
