I picked these pots up at the end of the season at Home Depot of course no name. They made them up for "Fall Planters" was the sign over them for 2.00. I picked up two pots.

It was late in the season and I did not have time to plant or even think about decorating in front of the door it was almost time for Thanksgiving and Christmas decorating.

Put them at the end of the driveway in front of the garage. I even shoveled snow on top of them a couple of times.

The purple one is blooming and it has a pretty yellow color.

Those are really pretty. What a great price. Those purple leave heuchera are so hard to name, all are very similar.

Yes and it seems the purples are so darn hardy. It is taking over the lighter color. I am thinking of thinning the purple one. Since it did so good in the pot I am going to leave them in the pot this winter and will use it as they intended as Fall front entrance decoration.

With my luck it will probably die when I use it as intended. Sad

My best guess would be Black Current for the purple one. Does the green one get any orange tones?

Yes Bob it does not show in the pic but it is more orange than green. I thought it was caramel but the leaf is to shinny. Not as hairy as Carmel.

Here is a better pic of when I purchased it.

I am thinking Creme Brulee. Both are Proven Winners which Home Depot sells their plants.

Thank you Carolyn. I am a shopper. I love to shop. I go out every day almost. I just window shop for everything. Some time I come home empty handed but not often. I have a daily budget if I do not spend that budget that day or week I can spend more another day.

If I did not set a budget I would be living in a under a bridge drinking rain water and eating worms for protein because I love to shop. Rolling on the floor laughing
