There are plenty of reasons to fall in love with this new Heucherella! The very large, deeply incised, brilliantly colored leaves have a vigorous, robust habit. In spring, the leaves are gold with sharply contrasting red veining. This color remains throughout most of the summer, then greens up a bit but retains the red veining. In the fall and winter, the evergreen foliage turns a warm shade of orange-pink. Small white flowers are produced in late spring and early summer. Heucherella is a hybrid genus produced from a cross between Heuchera and Tiarella.
Heucherellas perform beautifully in flower borders and in containers. A better performer in the north than in the south, their life span tends to increase as the average temperature is lowered. These perennials grow most vigorously and have the strongest colors when grown in partial shade (preferably afternoon shade). They can also be grown in full shade but their growth rate will be very slow. Some varieties can withstand full sun in northern climates if they have consistent moisture, but their colors tend to fade with the intensity of the sun. Heucherellas are evergreen in areas with mild winters. If the plant looks tattered by early spring, shear off any damaged leaves to make room for the vibrant new foliage which will fill in quickly.
