When it comes to creating a perennial garden, the most difficult thing is often the starting point: selecting the first type of plant. Then, from there, companion plants are selected. The small garden design below was designed using 'Sweet Tea' Foamy Bells (heucherella) as a the featured plant. Use the design "as is" or modify it to fit your unique garden space.

Feature Plant Description

Without a doubt, 'Sweet Tea' is one of if not the most brilliantly colored, exciting Heucherella ever grown. Colorful Heucherella are nothing new, but the play of oranges and browns on the leaves of 'Sweet Tea' introduces an entirely new palette to the family. The leaf colors become more vibrant in summer heat and humidity. With Heuchera villosa in its parentage, 'Sweet Tea' stands up to heat in the South, keeping its densely layered, mounded form.
