Gives a taste of fall in spring with its ‘Pumpkin Spice’! Bronze red leaves that emerge in late spring and hold its color well into early summer. Each 4” lobed leaf has deep mahogany centers that follow the veins of the leaf. Dark red stems hold cream flowers that appear in early summer. For best foliage color and performance, plant in an area with filtered sun or afternoon shade.
‘Pumpkin Spice’ is a H. villosa hybrid which means that it is naturally more heat and humidity tolerant and also has greater vigor than Heucherellas without such parentage. It forms a very dense mound of interesting foliage that is evergreen in most climates.
Heucherella is a hybrid genus produced from a cross between Heuchera and Tiarella.
