× Heucherella 'Tapestry' (PBR)
- Position: partial shade
- Soil: fertile, moist or well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June to August
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Each attractively lobed leaf has network of deep purple-black veins, from which the colour radiates out, becoming more intense in autum and winter. The sprays of pink flowers, which are held on upright stems above the foliage, appear in profusion from early summer, creating a frothy haze of colour. In cold winters the plant will lose most (if not all) of its foliage, however in milder conditions it will remain interesting throughout the year.
- Garden care: Remove tatty foliage in autumn. Lift and divide clumps every couple of years in early autumn and replant with the crown just above the surface of the soil. Apply a generous 5-7 cm (2-3 in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the crown of the plant in spring.
