x Heucherella

Saxifragaceae
Perennials, Flowers

These hybrids combine the flowering habit of coral bells (Heuchera) with the heart-shaped leaves of foamflower (Tiarella cordifolia). Most produce foliage clumps to 4–6 in. high and about 1 ft. wide; leaves are deeply lobed and up to 4 in. across. Late spring or summer blooms of pink or white are held on thin stalks 1–2 ft. high, creating a candlelike effect. Excellent choice for shaded rock gardens or as a woodland groundcover. Require rich, well-drained soil.
