New Colorful Perennial Flower

by Charlie Nardozzi

There?s one word that aptly describes Heucherella ?Sweet Tea? flowers: intense. This new perennial features stunning orange, 4-inch-diameter leaves that don?t fade with the summer heat and humidity, staying beautiful until fall. The leaves have darker cinnamon-star shape in the center with a lighter orange edge.

Heucherella is a cross between a coral bell (Heuchera spp.) and foam flower (Tiarella spp.) This new Heucherella has a 2-foot-tall mounding habit and grows best -- and has the most vivid color -- in part shade with morning sun. In early summer, 7-inch-tall flower stalks emerge from the plant with creamy white blooms on top. ?Sweet Tea? is hard in USDA zones 4 to 9.
