Add a dramatic splash of dark purplish black foliage to your combination containers and landscapes with the new Brazen Raisin. Medium to large size, flat, matte textured leaves with wine red undersides form a dense mound.
In midsummer, deep red scapes carry showy panicles of hot pink buds which open to pale pink to white flowers with a hot pink base. From a distance, the flowers appear like a light pink cloud floating above the nicely contrasting dark foliage. This plant occasionally reblooms into fall.Dolce® Brazen Raisin™ Heuchera hybrid 'Inheubrara' USPP 27,568, Can 5,296
