Heuchera maxima can be found on canyon cliffs in coastal sage scrub habitats. The flower stem reaches up to 24 inches tall, with many clusters of hairy flowers. Each flower is rounded with fleshy white or pink lobes and tiny petals curling away from the center.
Heuchera maxima is also cultivated as an ornamental plant for traditional, drought tolerant, native plant, and wildlife gardens. It prefers part shade, including as a ground cover in dry shade conditions under oaks.
