Heuchera micrantha 'Plum Pudding' is one of my favourite ground cover plants with a height and spread of 0.1-0.50m. It forms a compact clump of deep beetroot-purple leaves dusted with silvery-grey. The insignificant white flowers are borne on 60cm stems. It likes full sun or partial shade and moist but well-drained soil.
Purple figs - who knew! Native to Turkey, they slowly spread throughout the mediterranean region including Spain; Spaniards then brought them to Mexico in the 16th century; Franciscan monks brought the dark purple fruit to San Diego-area missions in the 1800s and thus were named Mission figs... now grown in Texas, California, Lousiana, Georgia, and Alabama... ~ Инжир
