Heucherella ‘Solar Power’

The lobed yellow gold to lime green leaves are splattered with deep red. It forms a large mound of color in part shade or shade. This Heucherella takes higher light levels than any yellow Heuchera or Heucherella we’ve seen. It did fine in 90-100° F temps in full sun in our black ground cloth covered trial beds! When grown in full shade it stays lime green with splatters of deep red.
