Terra Nova Nurseries introduces heat-loving heucherella variety

Terra Nova Nurseries announced a sneak peek of a new variety named Heucherella ‘Onyx’. This rust-resistant variety thrives in sun to part shade.

Heucherella ‘Onyx’ has true-black, glossy, deeply cut leaves that are shy to bloom but always remain neat and clean. The dense, medium-large, mounding habit makes this heucherella suitable for landscapes or mixed containers. Even though ‘Onyx’ loves the heat and humidity, it flourishes in hardiness zones 4-9, and does great in the Northwest.



This black heucherella has a foliage height of 10”, foliage spread of 16” and flower height of 15”. From plug to a 4”-pot, the finish time is between 4-6 weeks. For a gallon-sized pot, the finish time is 8-10 weeks.

Terra Nova Nurseries has created a “Plant Profile” page and “Grower Recipe” specific to this new variety so growers can learn about growing habit, plant characteristics, fertilization recommendations, water requirements, and other insights provided by the breeding team. These documents can be viewed and downloaded for printing at: www.terranovanurseries.com. Growers can contact their Terra Nova Nurseries’ representatives or email the sales team at sales@terranovanurseries.com
