Like a medieval rug spread over your garden borders, the leaves emerge in shades of green stitched through with an intricate pattern of wine red. Very attractive, and very easy to find a home for. All the leaf colour of Heuchera, all the frothy flowers of Tiarella, a plant from dappled woodland - it's a beautiful pairing. A little shade and a extra water in summer, and they're happy.
Heucherella (Heuchera x Tiarella) 'Tapestry'® - foamy bells
DESCRIPTION:Dense, mounding herbaceous perennial with heavily scalloped green leaves marked with a central pattern of warm red. Long slender stems of 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 full sun to dappled or part shade in moist but well-drained soil. Plant heucherellas slightly proud of the soil, so the centre of the plant is raised above the soil level. 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. YOUR PLANTS: These are tube-stock plants, young healthy plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. May be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
