Product Description

Heucheras, also known as Coral Bells, are amazing perennial plants, famed for their spectacular foliage in a huge range of colours with wonderful leaf shapes forming low growing evergreen or semi-evergreen mounds.

From the ‘Fox’ series of Heucheras, bred by Richard and Vicky Fox at their Jubilee Cottage Nursery in Cheshire where they hold the National Collection which currently exceeds 450 varieties, the leaves of ‘Tangerine Wave’ are beautifully textured with deep veins and delightfully wavy edges. As its name suggests, the foliage is a bright peachy orange colour when the plant is grown in full sun and takes on a more caramel hue growing in shadier conditions. The underside of the leaves is darker than the top, from pale orange to rich magenta, creating a lovely colour contrast.

In summer tall, dark pink stems grow up from the foliage carrying small white flowers that are attractive to bees and other flying insects and they’re great cut flowers too.

‘Tangerine Wave’ is happy growing in pots and looks great planted in borders. Heucheras look particularly good when several different varieties are planted together, creating a patchwork of colourful foliage. These adaptable plants will thrive in sun or partial shade and aren’t too fussy about soil conditions, as long as it isn’t heavy and waterlogged as that will cause the crown to rot. Usually evergreen, severe winters may cause leaf loss, but they’ll bounce back the following spring.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant, reaching a height of 25cm (10in) and spread of 30cm (1ft).

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Remove flower stems at the base as they begin to fade. This will encourage more flowers.

Care Guide

  • To plant, firstly water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • If the soil is heavy or not free draining add plenty of well-rotted compost and grit and dig in well.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out some of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed.
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well before adding a mulch around the base of the plant.
  • Heucheras are shallow rooted, so keep them well-watered, especially if grown in a pot, and mulch in spring, taking care no to cover the crown.
  • In spring, remove dead or damaged leaves from the foliage.
  • Look between the leaves for any woody stems and remove them.
  • Divide your Heuchers every three or four years do reinvigorate them. This is best done from May to July.
