Special Attributes

Hopscotch Heucherella, also known as foamy bells, features deeply lobed, oakleaf-like bronze-red to chartreuse leaves with wide, dark-red veining. Foliage turns to deeper shades of orange-red during the cool season. Small, star shaped white flowers atop thin stems rise 8-12 inches above the foliage in early to mid-summer. The Heuchera villosa bloodlines in this hybrid contribute a velvety leaf surface, later flowering habit, and exceptional heat and humidity tolerance.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a mound to about 10-12 inches tall and 24 inches wide, Hopscotch Heucherella is ideal for use as an accent or in groupings or mass plantings as a groundcover in landscape borders, in mixed perennial and shrub borders, as an underplanting beneath trees, and serves remarkably well as a solo in pots, planters or other containers or as texture and color plant in mixed container gardens. A fine addition to Heuchera gardens, rock gardens, shade gardens, tropical gardens, and woodland gardens.

In garden beds or containers, we like to combine Heuchera plants with other Heuchera or Heucherella varieties, hosta lilies, perennial ferns and other part shade to shade loving plants and trees.

Spacing: 18 inches for mass plantings; 36 inches or more for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

When planted right, and in the right spot Heucherella is easy to grow. 

Sun Preference:  Though Heucherella tolerate full sun in cooler zones north of USDA Zone 7 they appreciate some afternoon shade in USDA Zones 7-9. If grown in full sun, consistent moisture is very important. Scorch and general foliage decline may occur if soils are allowed to dry out. 

Soil Preferences:  Heucherella prefer a moist but well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy or wet soil is problematic. In the warmer climates of the southern zones plants are often evergreen, retaining nice foliage color throughout the winter season. In colder, northern zones foliage may discolor or die back over a harsh winter. Simply prune unsightly foliage away before new growth begins to emerge in late winter or early spring.
