Choose this unique looking Heucherella for its intense red leaves and incredibly lobed foliage. Newest leaves in spring are coppery red, a brighter red than ‘Hopscotch’. Each 5" large, deeply lobed leaf has burgundy red centers. The uniquely lobed leaves are almost finger-like, making it a great addition to both containers and the landscape. When temperatures increase, ‘Red Rover’ will mellow to more of an olive green. Burgundy rose stems hold creamy white flowers well above the foliage on tall scapes.
As a H. villosa hybrid, ‘Red Rover’ can stand up to hot and humid summers. The foliage is evergreen in most climates.
Heucherella is a hybrid genus produced from a cross between Heuchera and Tiarella. From Heuchera they gain the many different foliage colors and textures, while Tiarella add deeper leaf lobes and serration, as well as their signature central leaf blotching. Heucherella are sterile hybrids, and so typically have longer bloom seasons than either of their parents.
