Why plant Sweet Tea Foamy Bells?

As delightful as an ice-cold sweet tea on a hot day! This sensational Spirit is a beautiful sight to see from your patio or lounge chair. Plant Sweet Tea Foamy Bells where you can view it up close and appreciate its complex mix of warm earth tones. Its foliage color ranges from burnished copper to apricot to tawny gold. Each Maple-shaped leaf is further adorned with deep maroon–purple veining. In mild climates, the foliage even remains attractive during the winter months. Flowers, too! Sweet Tea Foamy Bells is grown primarily for its captivating amber-peach foliage, but its blooms are a nice bonus. In late spring, tiny, airy white blossoms rise on slim stems, making a lovely accompaniment to the earth-toned leaves.

A marriage made in heaven! Or, in Oregon. Sweet Tea Foamy Bells is a hybrid Spirit that had its origins in Canby, Oregon, in the early 2000s. Master plant breeder Dan Heims and his team at Terra Nova Nurseries crossed two American natives, Coral Bells and Foamflower, to produce a crop of interesting seedlings that became known as Foamy Bells. Sweet Tea was one of the best of the lot, chosen for its large, dramatically colored leaves and its vigor. It was introduced in 2009, and although many other Foamy Bells selections have come out since, it remains a customer favorite.

How to use Sweet Tea Foamy Bells in the landscape?

Serve up some Sweet Tea in any of the partly shaded, woodland borders around your home for a lovely show that lasts all year or as a stunning addition to a container planting.

How To Plant Sweet Tea Foamy Bells

Most Foamy Bells do best in morning sun, with shade during the hottest part of the day. Bright light will bring out the richest coloring in their foliage, but intense sun can scorch some varieties. Plant Sweet Tea in rich, organic, well-drained soil that is moist but never soggy. Black vine weevils can be a problem in some areas. You can control them organically with beneficial nematodes if this is the case, or simply keep your Foamy Bells in containers.

How To Water

Water deeply and consistently during the first growing season.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

Trim off spent flower spikes if you find them unattractive. Sweet Tea is evergreen; clean up any winter-damaged or faded foliage in early spring.
