Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Alumroot, Crevice Alumroot
Crevice alumroot, is an herbaceous perennial that originates from western North America. It is primarily grown for its large, mounded clumps of attractive, glossy, maple-like leaves that may be gray-green, dark green or purple, depending on the selection. In early to midsummer it puts forth tall stems topped with loose clusters of tiny white to pink bell-shaped flowers. These should be removed once they are finished blooming.
This perennial grows best in sites with part sun and fertile, but well drained soil. It looks great when planted in masses beneath trees or planted in mixed borders with brightly colored perennials.
