Heuchera americana 'Dale's Strain' (coral bells or American alumroot) white flower in spring, silver/burgundy/green leaf, evergreen, part to full shade, moist well drained, DE native

NorthCreek Nurseries webpage

The beautiful leaves of this alumroot look especially nice against the background of the lady fern. Athyrium filix-femina

I think this lady fern may be the cultivar called 'Lady in Red' for the red stem color.
