Heucherella ‘Fire Frost’

'Fire Frost' has lovely, warm leaves of yellow to lime with a large red center frosted by a strong white veil. It forms a vigorous mound that is well-colored all year. Breeding with H. villosa hybrids has given it the larger leaves and habit as well as a tolerance to heat and humidity. Great in a container or in the garden bed.
