Solar Eclipse Foamy Bells: Heucherella - 1GAL Pot
Heucherella 'Solar Eclipse' features deeply lobed, purple-black leaves with a contrasting lime green edge.
Caring for Heucherella, a hybrid plant resulting from a cross between Heuchera and Tiarella, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. Heucherella thrives in partial shade to full shade, although some varieties can tolerate more sun. Plant it in well-draining soil with organic matter added to improve moisture retention. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, especially during hot and dry periods. Mulching around the plant helps to conserve moisture and suppress weeds. Prune any dead or damaged leaves to maintain a tidy appearance. Heucherella plants are generally low-maintenance and do not require regular fertilization. However, you can apply a balanced slow-release fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth. These plants are typically resistant to pests and diseases. With proper care, your Heucherella will display its unique foliage patterns and delicate flowers, adding beauty and texture to your garden or containers.
