Spikes of delicate white flowers are held above the foliage in early summer. (Heucherella)

(7-10" tall x 15" wide) 'Cracked Ice' Heucherella has lobed leaves that are richly adorned with silver and green coloring in summer, a variation from the silvery-pink and deep purple veining in spring and fall. Tiny, frothy white flowers appear on tall stems above the foliage in early summer. The compact size and exceptional texture of 'Cracked Ice' Heucherella works beautifully in both containers and gardens. This versatile and interesting perennial is lovely as a mounding specimen (meaning it grows both vertically and horizontally) to transition between tall and low plants. Plant on 'Cracked Ice' on its own, or create a rich complement to other shade-loving plants and flowers. Also called Foamy Bells, hybrid Heucherella combines the exciting colors of Heuchera (Coral Bells) with the deeply lobed leaves and intricate patterning of Tiarella (Foam Flower). Plant in rich soil that retains moisture but drains well, and ensure that the crowns of the plant are not buried when planting. Place in a part-shade to full-shade position. (Heucherella)
