Quick Overview:

Get a sweet taste of fall in spring with ‘Pumpkin Spice’! Bronze red leaves emerge in late spring and hold its color well into early summer. Each 4” lobed leaf has deep mahogany centers that follow the veins of the leaf. Dark red stems hold cream flowers that appear in early summer. For best foliage color and performance, plant in an area with filtered sun or afternoon shade.  ‘Pumpkin Spice’ 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.

Description

Best grown in organically rich, humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Performs well in full sun in the north, but prefers some shade (particularly in the heat of the afternoon) in the south. The best foliage color may occur in sunny spots with part afternoon shade. Scorch and general foliage decline usually occur if soils are allowed to dry out. If grown in full sun, consistent moisture is particularly important. Remove stems of faded flowers to encourage additional bloom. Foliage is essentially evergreen in warm winter climates, but the amount of retained foliage color in cold winter climates depends in large part upon the severity of the temperatures. In cold winter climates, a winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving. Divide clumps in spring every 3-4 years.
