Heucherella villosa 'Catching Fire'

Foamy Bells

Plant Type: Perennial

If you’re looking for a bright-colored foliage plant, you’ve found it! 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 H. villosa hybrid which means that it is naturally more heat and humidity tolerant and also has greater vigor than Heucherellas without such parentage. It forms a very dense mound of interesting foliage that is evergreen in most climates.

Heucherella is a hybrid genus produced from a cross between Heuchera and Tiarella.
