When is the best time to plant tiarellas and Heucherellas?

This question was asked by

When is the best time to plant Tiarellas and can I plant Heucherellas at the same time?

Hi Gary
You can plant Heuchera, Heucherella & Tiarella all year round, as long as the ground isn’t frozen.
Have you seen our new Tiarella ‘Angel Wings’ its very pretty with unusual foliage

Heucheras are Great for Winter Colour

Heucheras are great for some winter colour for your flower beds and borders. Just look how gorgeous these frosty beauties look around our nursery after our first frost last week! As they are hardy perennials, they can normally withstand the colder temperatures and some varieties even retain their brightly coloured foliage.


Heuchera Tangerine Wave has pretty cascading colours of green, yellow, orange and pink with even brighter under foliage colours.

All our plants ship to you in big 1 litre pots so that they have developed roots and are ready to be planted. They would make fantastic Christmas presents for the plant lovers in your life as they can be planted straight away. Order by December 10 to receive your plants in time for Christmas. Want to give the gift of plants but don’t think someone will want to plant them this time of year? We also sell gift vouchers here.

Plant in the Sun or Plant in the Shade

A good rule of thumb to remember (not set in stone but a great guide) is that like pale skin, the paler coloured leaves like Lime greens, yellows, and all heucherella and tiarella need more shade from the full sun to stop them burning up!

Richer colours like the reds, oranges, purples and black love full sun as well as light shade. Why not make room in your garden for evergreen hardy plants like these.


These colours can all go in partial shade if you wanted to plant them all together.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match colours for a truly spectacular look in your garden. As you can see from the first two photos all these can be planted in the same aspect to give you a kaleidoscope of colours!
