Heucherella 'sweet tea' and 'solar eclipse' are both doing very well in zone 8b (Central Texas) in 2 completely shaded front beds.

'Sweet Tea' is a good name. The cinnamon-orange leaves are a beautiful color throughout the season. My plant took off really well in the first year despite 100-degree heat and several horrid dry spells. Foliage also looks really good after several frosts. Excellent plant. Flowers will be a bonus.

Outstanding color , size and performance as it done very well for me this spring thru fall..Grew as a plug and was a vigorous grower with no real problems. If you want foliage color all season this plant will do fine. The foam flowers are very cute amongst the rust foliage.
