‘Cracked Ice’ Heucherella

X Heucherella 'Cracked Ice'

In summer, blue and green tones are punctuated with dramatic veining. In early spring and fall, the leaves get a charming silvery-pink overlay. A lovely complement to Heucherella 'Buttered Rum'. Healthy, vigorous, and easy to grow. The compact habit is a natural choice for containers and landscapes. Short spikes of white flowers appear in spring and summer.
