x Heucherella 'Sweet Tea' PBR
Coral Bells - 2 litres
x Heucherella 'Sweet Tea' is a superb, vigorous evergreen perennial forming a mound of large, light brownish-orange, maple-like leaves, with bold, red-orange stars at the centre. Very effective in the garden and good for flower arranging. Sprays of small white flowers attract bees and butterflies in late spring. Lovely in a border with Heucheras and other x Heucherellas with contrasting foliage colour; also good in containers. Height and spread 30-40cm by 45cm.
Thrives in well drained, fertile soil, in sun or partial shade. For growing in containers use good multi-purpose compost. Remove spent flower stems to promote continuous flowering. Divide and replant in late summer or early autumn every 3 or 4 years, using only younger, outer pieces. Mulch with leaf mould or compost in spring.
