Blue Star Creeper & ‘Red Rover’ Foamy Bells

What Would You like to Learn About Today?

You may be wondering why we’re suggesting you grow a shade plant with a sun plant, but trust us! Blue star creeper (Isotoma fluviatilis) is known to adding a splash of color in the sun with a blanket of light blue flowers, while Fun and Games® ‘Red Rover’ foamy bells (Heucherella) pops in the shade with coppery red foliage. Where do they overlap? In part sun! This colorful duo is durable, easy to grow, and patriotic, especially when creamy white flowers bloom on ‘Red Rover’. If you have an open spot in your part sun bed, consider adding in this pair! Between the long-blooming blue flowers and red foliage that persists spring-fall, your garden will be colorful all season long.
