Heucherella Wehr.

Herbaceous perennial. Leaves mostly rounded, ovate, basal. Flowers numerous, in branched clusters. Sepals and petals 5. Stamens mostly 7-8, occasionally to as few as 5 or as many as 10. Carpels 2, generally of slightly different sizes.

This is an intergeneric hybrid between Heuchera and Tellima, known at present in S E Australia only through ×H. alba (Lemoine) Stearn (Heuchera ×brizoides × Tiarella wherryi), a clump-forming perennial with grey-mottled, basal leaves that are ovate, 7-9-lobed and toothed.

Garden origin.

A sterile hybrid propagated by cuttings or division.

Similar to both hybrid parents but distinguished primarily by the stamen number which tends to vary from flower to flower.
