Prairie Alumroot, Heuchera richardsonii


Prairie alumroot is a unique plant on the prairie due to its characteristic growth habit of a mound of circular, gently lobed leaves. Though tolerant of many soil types it is often found in gravely well-draining locations. Its somewhat understated tubular flowers attract a variety of butterflies and even hummingbirds! It is also the host plant for one of Minnesota’s many native specailist bees, Colletes aestivalis
