Small wildflower with attractive deep green foliage mottled in silver highlights. Creamy, greenish-white delicate panicles of tiny flowers on tall stems. A winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving. Tolerant of sun if given adequate moisture and some midday shade.
This species is very similar in size and color to the more well-known Heuchera americana. The main difference is the individual flowers of H. longiflora are larger and held on stems that are shorter than H. americana.
