“Heuchera ‘Plum Power’ is very strong and can resist extreme cold as well as extreme heat. It is disease tolerant and comes back year after year where other Heuchera-varieties give up”, tells European royalty management agency Plantipp ethousiatically in a press release. According to Peter van Rijssen from Plantipp this Plum Forever Power message about this variety was enough reason for UK plantsman and TV presenter Michael Perry also known as Mr. Plantgeek to have this beauty tattooed on his arm forever. The tattoo stands for the long lasting pleasure Plum Power will give in ones garden. This tattoo was sponsored by the breeder of this Heuchera, Luc Klinkhamer.
“Apart from being strong, Heuchera Plum Power is a true beauty. It has a sturdy growth habit and beautiful, striking, dark leaf markings. The foliage colour changes throughout the year from burgundy red to classy purple-pink with a touch of silver. The leaves can be up to 25 cm wide and 40 cm long. Starting in late June, Plum Power produces dark pink flowers, which will appear again in September. ‘Plum Power’ is perfect for containers on your terrace or patio, in perennial borders or in mixed containers”.
