Heucherella Hopscotch - foamy bellsBack in stock: Now
More butterscotch than hopscotch, this lovely foliage plant glows in toasty-warm sunset shades throughout the cooler months. All the leaf colour of Heuchera, all the frothy flowers of Tiarella, a plant from dappled woodland. Put 'em together and bibbity bobbity boo you've got a gorgeous groundcover. A little shade and a extra water in summer, and they're happy.
Heucherella (Heuchera x Tiarella) 'Hopscotch'® - foamy bellsDESCRIPTION: Dense, mounding herbaceous perennial with heavily scalloped leaves that start off golden yellow then deepen to bronze-orange with red central markings. Foliage becomes deep green in summer. Long slender stems of cream-white flowers spring-summer. Heucherella is a hybrid of Heuchera and Tiarella. Heuchera gives foliage colour, Tiarella has fancier leaf shapes and markings, plus larger flowers. Heucherella are sterile.
USE IN: Garden beds and borders, cottage and informal gardens, underplanting.
LOCATION: Plant in dappled or part shade in moist but well-drained soil. Totally frost-hardy. Will need more watering in full sun or warmer gardens during summer to keep those leaves lush.
CARE: Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks, and again each spring. Cut back any dead or untidy foliage in spring to make room for new growth, and give it fresh mulch.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 20 - 25 cm H x 45 - 50 cm W.
