Heucherella Sweet Tea
Heucherella Sweet Tea new for 2010
What is a Heucherella?? I love when they cross different species that then form a beautiful looking plant.. Heucherella is a cross between a heuchera and tiarella.
Foliage of a Heuchera and flowers and cut leaves of a Tiarella together they form this outstanding specimen of a plant.
With a added bonus of tolerating the heat and humidity.
Featuring: Large cinnamon star leaves surrounded by orange tea colored borders. Possibly the most intense colored Heucherella to date.
The big, cut leaves darken in the summer and lighten up again in the fall. Its H. villosa breeding gives it a big bold habit.
Can you imagine how this plant can and will look in your landscape , the color definitely will stand out wherever it is planted.
Heucherella Sweet Tea has fast growth and a mounded tight habit. Grows 28″w/20″h/27″ flower height.
Flowers in spring and resembles foam flowers and are white pinkish color.
Plant in part shade to morning sun area, and is hardy in Zones 4-9.
Landscape choices include shade gardens, woodland gardens, containers , and mixed bed areas.
Diane’s Notes: This has to be one of my new favorite plants, I was very impressed with it’s growth and it is all they say it is.. Outstanding color all season. Don’t hestitate on this plant , I love it and I am pretty picky on plant choices..
