(Baneberry-White) Actaea ‘Misty Blue’ is a shade loving native woodland perennial that is named for its delicate blue-green foliage. Clusters of small white flowers float above the foliage from late spring to early summer. In autumn the flowers develop into panicles of eye-catching white fruit which are borne on red pedicels. ‘Misty Blue’ is a low maintenance, long-lived perennial.
(Coral Bells) Heuchera ‘Miracle‘ is a hot new variety that truly is a miracle in Heuchera breeding! The plant goes through several changes in leaf coloration throughout the seasons.

As the foliage matures, it turns brick red with a bright chartreuse to gold edge and silvered undersides. Try planting near a walkway or in a container where passerby’s can enjoy its beauty up close. Heuchera ‘Miracle‘ is a very good grower that is tolerant of high heat and humidity!
