About Ella

Ella is a mainstay of the Patch family. She rarely makes a fuss and can take care of herself, making her a very welcome guest in our garden and many others!

Details

Ella is a hybrid of two other Patch favourites – the Heuchera and Tiarella. The former brings its maple-shaped leaves while the latter contributes its beautiful panicles of star-shaped flowers, which bloom from Spring onwards. As an evergreen plant, Ella offers a variety of colours all year round and grows slowly.

Plant height: 20-30cm. Pot size: 2L

Likes

Happy in sunny and shady spots and, indeed, both sheltered and exposed sites, Ella is a good plant for beginners and pros alike.

Dislikes

Ella produces new leaf growth throughout the year so don't be afraid to pull off dead leaves if you find them. If not, they're taking energy that could otherwise be spent on generating growth.

Looking after this plant

If kept in a shady spot, she'll prefer it to also be quite moist so make sure she's kept well watered.

We recommend planting one Ella every 20cm (i.e. three would fit neatly in a 60cm long trough). If she's to be planted in one of our troughs, she'll need one of these 20L bags of multi-purpose compost.

Living with pets and children

Non-toxic.
