x-Heucherella Sweet Tea

Evergreen, herbaceous perennial featuring brilliant coppery-orange foliage with a central blotch of rich burgundy that fans out into veins. The star-shaped leaves darken in the summer and lighten up again in autumn. From Spring to Summer, it produces arching stems of tiny bell-shaped white flowers. Its H.villosa breeding gives it a big bold habit and heat and humidity tolerance. Impervious to most pests and diseases, this vigorous and well-branched Heuchera is a good choice for groundcover.

Hardiness: Hardy

Bloom: Small white flowers April to July

Foliage: Orange foliage with rich cinnamon centre

Habit: 60cm x 50cm

Culture: Full sun or partial shade, moist but well-drained soil. Will be more compact and produce more vivid colour if grown in full sun.
