The search was on for a great performing orange Heucherella, and we’ve found it with ‘Hopscotch’. Leaves emerge red with dark red centers early in spring, before lightening to bronze red. Each leaf is lobed, giving it a unique lacy texture in the garden. In the heat of summer, the leaves mellow to deep green. In late spring, cream, bottlebrush shaped flowers appear above the foliage. ‘Hopscotch’ is a H. villosa hybrid which means that it is naturally more heat and humidity tolerant, including greater vigor than Heucherellas without such parentage. The foliage is evergreen in most climates.
Heucherella is a hybrid genus produced from a cross between Heuchera and Tiarella.
