Heucherella – Catching Fire Foamy Bell
If you’re looking for a bright colored foliage plant, you’ve found it with Catching Fire Foamy Bells, Heucherella! Vibrant lime green leaves are rounded, giving it a refined presence in the garden. In the centers of each leaves are very defined flame-shaped markings that flare from the center like cherry red fire. In summer, these markings will deepen to mahogany. Cream flowers appear in early summer. This is a very polished, vigorous plant. For best foliage color and performance, plant in an area with filtered sun or afternoon shade.
Catching Fire is a hybrid of the native American Heuchera villosa, which means that it is naturally heat and humidity tolerant and also has great vigor. It forms a very dense mound of interesting foliage that is evergreen.
A garden designer’s favorite, Foamy Bells’ superior mounded form and striking evergreen leaves make them ideal for containers and edging, or for neat and tidy designs. Foamy Bells prefer morning sun and afternoon shade.
Plant in part shade in well-draining soil.
