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, itâ€™s all about the foliage with heucherella.This year, Terra Nova Nurseries introduced a new heucherella called â€˜Alabama Sunrise.â€™ (Photo from Terra Nova.)In spring to mid-summer, its leaves are gold with red veins. The leaves fade to green with red veins in late summer. In fall, the older foliage turns orange pink.Heucherella gets its common name, foamy bells, from the common names of its genetic parents, heuchera (coral bells) and tiarella (foam flower).Foamy bells are fairly compact and work well as a clump-forming groundcover. The clumps reach a height of about 10 inches, and insignificant white flower stalks appear in late spring to early summer.Hardy to USDA Zone 4, â€˜Alabama Sunriseâ€™ does fine in average well-drained garden soil and itâ€™s said to be heat and humidity tolerant. Deer resistant, too.Good companion plants include hostas, ferns, astilbes and pulmonarias â€” and heucheras and tiarellas, of course.
