Family

Saxifragaceae

Botanical Name

X HEUCHERELLA 'Pink Frost'

Plant Common Name

Foamy Bells, Pink Frost Foamy Bells

General Description

Foamy bells is a hybrid resulting from a cross of Heuchera (coralbells) and Tiarella (foamflower) resulting in clump-forming plants with both showy flowers and foliage. ‘Pink Frost' is distinguished by its deep green leaves that shimmer with silver markings and develop a maroon tinge in fall. In late spring through summer, small bright pink flowers are arranged on candle-like stalks that are twice the height of the plant.

Pink frost foamy flower thrives in partial sun to part shade in fertile, well-drained soils making it a versatile groundcover or path edging. It is also well-suited to the rock or woodland garden.
