Sweet Tea Heucherella

Heucherella x 'Sweet Tea' PP #21,296

SKU
04117
Undoubtedly, the most intensely colored heucherella ever! Striking orange foliage is emblazoned with huge star-shaped bursts of cinnamon. Big, palmate leaves darken in the summer and lighten in the fall. Great accent for shady woodland gardens, containers, or mixed beds. Evergreen in mild climates; an herbaceous perennial in colder regions.
