Heuchera maxima (Island Alum Root) - Native to the Channel Islands off of Santa Barbara's coast this clumping perennial forms 1 foot tall hummocks of large (2-3 inches wide) dark green leaves that are lightly marbled and often red tinged in winter. In spring emerge clusters of pinkish-white flowers on intricately branching stems that rise 1 to 2 feet above the foliage. Plant is full sun (coastal) to light shade with occasional to infrequent irrigation. Hardy to 10-15. In its native habitat this plant inhabits shady woods and canyons.
