Care Instructions for Heucherella

HeucherellaBotanical name: Heurcherella

  • Sun Requirements: Partial shade to full sun 
  • Soil Requirements: Well-drained, hummus-enriched soil
  • Zones: 4-9

The foliage of the heucherella is no bunch of boring green fronds: these shade plants feature lobed leaves in a rainbow of colors! Heurcherella grows with vigor, creating dense mounds of leaves. Bell-shaped flowers appear in the fall.

Soil Preparation:
Till the soil to a depth of 12-15", using a spade or a rototiller. Mix in hummus or bonemeal to increase drainage. You may also want to till in plant food, such as such as Spring Hill’s Advanced Formula Plant Food.

Plant your Heucherella plants approximately 12-28” apart, at the same depth at which the plants were potted. Water in lightly. Too much moisture can damage growing shoots.

Continuous Care:
After the plants are established, water regularly during dry periods. Heucherella are fairly drought-resistant, and don’t need much supplemental moisture.
After the growing period, heucherella can be left whole for the winter. Trim any damaged or ragged leaves in the spring.
