  • Care
    Care Information
    Provide enriched, well-drained soil; take care not to bury crown when planting. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; tolerates drier soils once established. Avoid excessive winter moisture. Feed regularly throughout growing season. Remove old, faded foliage in early spring.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).

  • History & Lore
    History:
    A 2019 Terra Nova Nurseries introduction, exclusive to Monrovia.
    Lore:
    x Heucherella are a cross of two native American species: Heuchera and Tiarella. They are more resistant to rust and disease than their parent plants, and the resulting hybrid lends the striking yellow foliage and deep colored venation from the Tiarella.
