Dusky and mysterious, the Cracked Ice Heucherella may just be the perennial that you didn’t know you needed. Like a fractured ice block, this Foamy Bell has layers of intricate coloration and markings that are unlike almost any other plant you might find in your landscape. An unusual hint of blue-green hides under the dark veining and the maple-like leaves are frosted in shades of silvery-pink in the cooler temperatures of spring and fall.
Heucherella Cracked Ice forms a compact mound about 7” tall and 15” across with short spikes of white flowers in spring and summer which are the perfect contrast to its dark foliage.
If you needed another reason to pick one up today, the Cracked Ice Heucherella is disease and pest resistant, with impressive heat tolerance. Plant this beauty to see it return even better, year after year.
