Sweet Tea is a fairly new and quite remarkable variety of foam flower with foliage that changes with the seasons, amber orange in spring, darkening to more russet and coppery red shades in summer. Frothy white flowers spring into summer. An evergreen delight. Best in shade, though it is fine with morning or evening sun. Any reasonable soil. 20 in. 1 litre pot.

Sweet Tea could well be our new favourite among the heucherellas with its palette of warm colours, changing throughout the seasons, and its ability to flourish with more in the way of direct sunlight than many of its cousins. It's also a good robust plant and flowers well over a long period.
Terra Nova nurseries, who brought Heucherella Sweet Tea to market, go so far as to describe Heucherella Sweet Tea as 'undenialy the most intensely coloured, most popular Heucherella ever!'. And they should know.
Heucherella Sweet Tea is a hardy evergreen perennial with copper red leaves with orange margins and white fluffy flowers suitable for shade.
