A hybrid between Coral Bells and Foam Flower, combining the best traits of both into one plant.  This selection forms a low mound of bright-yellow leaves with a star-shaped center marking of beet red.  Short spikes of white flowers appear in late spring. Leaves change to green with red markings during the summer.  Plants seem to scorch with direct exposure to hot afternoon sun, so plant this where it receives afternoon shade or all-day dappled shade.  Nice choice for the woodland garden, or for edging in a shady perennial border or rock garden.  Evergreen in mild winter regions.  Foliage should not be trimmed back in the fall, but plants may be tidied up in spring by removing any brown or tired-looking leaves.  This selection is similar to 'Sunspot' but seems to have much better vigor.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Heucherellas perform beautifully in flower borders and in containers.  A better grower in the north than in the south their life span tends to increase as the average temperature is lowered.  Heucherellas grow most vigorously and have the strongest color when grown in partial shade, preferably afternoon shade.  They can be grown in full sun but their growth rate will be very slow and their colors will fade with the intensity of the sun.  If properly sited out of the way of winter winds and with reliable snow cover, Heucherellas may act as an evergreen.  If the foliage looks tattered by early spring, shear off any damaged leaves to make room for the vibrant new foliage which will fill in quickly.
