Description

One of the most beautifully coloured heucherella we've seen, with foliage changing by season from deep, dark mahogany in summer to a softer, cinnamon-streaked copper in autumn. Pick a partially shady spot where it will get sunshine in the morning and shade in the afternoons as this combination seems to encourage the most dramatic colours. In summer, starry white flowers bloom above the foliage.

Care Tips

Dead head the flowers throughout the year. Mulch in spring with well rotted organic matter. Clear away dead and damaged foliage in spring. In spring check that the plant hasn't lifted during winter. Divide every three or four years and replant.
