Prepare to get lost in the colorful folds of the Tapestry Heucherella from the Southern Living Plant Collection! Dark-centered leaves are colored blue-green in spring and summer and change to green with dark centers in fall and winter. New leaves have a distinctly blue iridescence.
In spring, expect to see the Tapestry sending up free-flowering stems of warm pink flowers, the perfect contrast to its dark foliage. This hybrid grows great in the South as well as the Northwest and grows well in Full Sun and Part Shade.
Plant it for the looks, but love it for its natural disease and pest resistant nature, as well as its heat tolerance. This perennial will be back year after year, more impressive than ever.
Tapestry Heucherella Care
This plant is hardy from USDA Zones 4-9.
Plant in Full Sun to Part Shade for best results. (We tend to recommend more on the part shade unless you are in cooler zones Ex: 4-6)
Water 3-4 times per week during the first growing season. In the second growing season, provide supplementary water in times of extreme heat and drought.
The Tapestry Heucherella prefers rich garden soil with good drainage.
Perennials rarely need supplemental fertilizer, however, 3-4 inches of compost around the plant yearly provides nutrients to keep the plant happy and healthy.
Spacing Your Tapestry Heucherella
For a seamless planting, plant your Tapestry Heucherella 6-12 inches apart from plant center to plant center. Otherwise, space them 16 to 18 inches for mass plantings; 36 inches or more for space between plants.
