Frosted Violet has interesting fuzzy stems. I've grown it on the N/W corner of my house where it got full afternoon sun, and was subjected to (rich, but) hot, dry soil. Last year I moved it to full shade in rich/humusy soil and it has done just as well. Quite dark, but interesting in combination with other, lighter leaved heucheras. Performs well in zn. 5. Worth having in the garden.
