This versatile evergreen perennial finds itself at home in some difficult situations - under oaks and other deciduous trees, for example. There it forms mounds of relatively large, rounded leaves with wavy margins which remain attractive throughout the year. The flowering stems are sturdy and rise to 2 feet bearing their bounty of small bell-shaped flowers. Heuchera 'Old La Rochette' was one of the plants selected from a breeding program done at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont, CA, in 1953. This is the largest of those selections which were made by crossing H. maxima with H. sanguinea.
