This vibrant shade star will stop garden visitors in their tracks! Striking gold to lime leaves are centrally accented by dramatic red veining. 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 Heuchera. Heucherella ‘Stoplight’ evolves it’s colouration from bright yellow-lime new growth in spring, intensifying to lime and red foliage in summer. Masses of delicate white flowers are produced in spring. Combine with red foliage plants, for instance Heuchera ‘Fire Alarm’, for a stunning display. Vigorous and quick to establish but not invasive.
Grow Heucherella ‘Stoplight’ in full to part shade for best results and colour. Prefers moist but well drained, humus rich soils. Water and feed occasionally with slow release fertiliser. Take care not to bury the crowns when planting Heuchera or Heucherella.
