Heucherellas are a cross between Tiarellas and Heucheras. As expected these are woodland plants and shade lovers, liking slightly more moist growing conditions than do Heucheras. The cross provides the vigorous spreading growth of Tiarellas and the fascinating leaf shapes, with the incredible array of colours of the Heucheras. Heucherella ‘Brass Lantern’ will deliver outstanding vigour combined with brassy gold and red spring colour on maple shaped leaves. A beacon in the garden. Use this large, evergreen, landscape perennial in mixed beds, under high branching shrubs, or in a container. Spikes of white flowers on dark stems. Winter colour will evolve to olive and brown. Best colour contrast with some shade.
As a H. villosa cross, you can expect good heat and humidity tolerance.
Grow Heucherella ‘Brass Lantern’ in part shade for best results and colours. Protect from intense direct sunlight particularly afternoon sun. Prefers moist but well drained, humus rich soils. Water and feed occasionally with slow release fertiliser. Easy care. Hardy. 0.50 x 0.60m
