Plant Information

6-12” tall x 12-24” wide. Silvery, heart-shaped leaves are strongly veined and marginated with deep green, making ‘Sea Heart’ an absolute must for shady to part-shade gardens! The delicate, abundant pink-to-blue flowers appear in early spring held just above the gorgeous foliage; but when they fade you’ll hardly notice as this workhorse perennial stays beautiful well into autumn. Perfect for woodland gardens and part-shade environments, ‘Sea Heart’ can also tolerate dry-shade conditions, although it is at its best in moist shady conditions. As it is rarely touched by deer, consider using it as a bright, clumping ground cover in shady, edge-of-woodland or remote gardens. Or use it as a stunning foliage accent in patio or deck containers that receive morning sun only. Gorgeous paired with native ferns, ‘Sea Heart’ is a versatile plant that will teach you to love your shade garden!

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
