Heucherella ‘Solar Power’

Foamy Bells

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.268.230

A hybrid between Coral Bells and Foam Flowers, combining the best traits of both into one plant. This vigorous selection produces a large mound of lobed, yellow-gold to lime green leaves that are splashed with deep red. Sprays of small white bell flowers appear in late spring. Nice choice for the woodland garden, for edging in a shady perennial border or rock garden and in mixed containers. Reported to handle more sun without burning than most yellow types. When planted in deep shade, leaves remain lime green with deep red spatters. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Foliage should be left alone in the fall, but plants may be tidied up in spring by removing any brown or tired-looking leaves. A finalist in the 2011 Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year Award category. A Terra Nova Nurseries of Oregon introduction. USPP#22427: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
