Some one sent me these two when I first started buying Heucheras. I started them out in pots and then put them in the garden. They never get any bigger. I have had them a long time about 6 years. I moved them to the new property 4 years ago and they have been in this spot since then.

I have always thought of doing a little fairy garden. I am going to use these two in the fairy garden.

Cross your fingers they do not die when I finally decide they are just a mini mistake herc and that they will not like being planted in a fairy garden.

I can see them now just because I include them in a Fairy garden either die or get big after all these years. Rolling on the floor laughing The leaves are not much bigger than my Charlie weed.

I do not see a lot of use for them unless you are doing a fairy garden. I have lost them a couple times because something is always covering them up. Hilarious!

I think they are adorable. A fairy garden would be so cute. What color flowers do they get?

When she sent them she said they were ebony and ivory. That they are not.

That's very pretty bet the hummers love the flowers. Here are a few older ones that it could be 'Peppermint Spice' or 'Cinnabar Silver'. Not sure.

I found a cute fairy house and fairies at St Vincent DePauls for 3.00 so they are going to be the beginning of a fairy garden. The are too small to stay in the garden with the other big plants they keep getting hidden.

I am scouting out a small area to create this fairy garden.

That is Persicaria virginiana Variegata Painter's Palette

It seeds a lot. Some of the babies are green and purple some of the babies look like this....
