What is a xHeucherella?

A Heucherella is an intergeneric hybrid of a Heuchera and a Tiarella and displays the best attributes of both parents.  An intergeneric hybrid is indicated by an x in front of its genus. The brilliant, colorful foliage is inherited  from its Heuchera parent, while the dark spots and markings come from Tiarella. Their light requirement varies  - dependent on the specific plants in their genetic composition.  These evergreen perennials are very deer resistant and attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.  They are also drought tolerant and will grow in the presence of walnut trees.  Care of this group of eye-catching plants is minimal. Remove spent flowers. If foliage fades or dries out in late summer or early fall, cut off old growth.  Do not prune for winter.  Cut off any dead leaves in spring.  Although Heucherella was first produced in 1912, its popularity has increased with the more  recent introduction of some spectacular hybrids.  Treat yourself and add a few to your garden!
