Vibrant, Coppery, Orange Sweet Tea Heucherella

  • Non-Fading Bright Apricot Leaves
  • Vigorous Grower
  • Loves Heat and Humidity
  • Easy to Care for

The Sweet Tea Heucherella (Heucherella 'Sweet Tea') adds a splash of color to your garden with its bold, apricot orange, mounding leaves which measure 4 inches across!

The vibrant, coppery orange color will darken somewhat in the summer, and the color will lighten up again in the fall. What a great new color palate to add to your shade garden!

Small, white, bell-shaped flowers appear on slender stems in late spring. 'Sweet Tea' Heucherella, also known as Foamy Bells, keep their intense, nearly cinnamon coloration throughout the heat of summer.

The Sweet Tea Heucherella is an ideal selection for regions of the country with hot, steamy summers. You can plant them in groups, containers, rock gardens, borders, or open woodland gardens.

'Sweet Tea' Heucherella plants are low maintenance and widely adaptable to different soil types, but do best at home in moist, but well drained, organic enriched soils. It's a good idea to add mulch at the base of your plants, to help retain moisture, especially in areas exposed to direct sunlight.

These Heucherella are a mainstay of vibrant shade borders and fine containers. They are beloved because they are so easy to grow and their large, colorful leaves are far longer lasting than any blooms. They do attract butterflies and hummingbirds, and is deer resistant as well.

Order today, and you'll love the coppery foliage of the Sweet Tea Heucherella as much as we do!
