Heucherella Stoplight (Heucherella ‘Stoplight’)
Heucherella Stoplight, Heucherella ‘Stoplight’ (PP#16,835), will cause you to stop momentarily to admire its colorful beauty in your landscape! The radiant yellow leaves of Heucherella ‘Stoplight’ have a large, dark red blotch in the center which feathers out through the veins. It is an improved version of Heucherella ‘Sunspot’ (PP#14,825).
When you cross Heuchera with Tiarella, two hardy stalwarts of the shade garden, you get Heucherella, another good plant that does well in shade. Like its two parents, it’s all about the foliage with Heucherella!
‘Stoplight’ is a fairly compact plant and works well as a clump-forming groundcover.
Attractive spires of white flowers appear in late spring through early summer. It is a low maintenance perennial that tolerates high heat and humidity.
‘Stoplight’ Heucherella plants make themselves at home in moist but well-drained, organic-enriched soils. ‘Stoplight’ is attractive to hummingbirds and rarely troubled by deer.
They are a mainstay of vibrant shade borders and fine containers. Beloved because they are so easy to grow and their large, colorful leaves are far longer-lasting than any blooms.
It surely will be a hit when planted in mass as a ground cover or in groups; also does well in rock gardens, borders, and open woodland gardens.
