Heucherella ‘Cracked Ice’
You don't have to watch your step around this icy beauty. In summer, blue and green tones are punctuated with dramatic veining. In early spring and fall the leaves get a charming silvery-pink overlay. A lovely complement to Heucherella 'Buttered Rum'. Healthy, vigorous, and easy to grow. The compact habit is a natural choice for containers and landscapes.
