I don't know which variety these are but they are wonderful plants that we use in deep shade. I wish all plants were this reliable.

Here is my gardening buddy Barnie. To tell you the truth Barnie would rather play ball.

Tennessee Dave,

Barnie is by far the cutest, but that first one is "Caramel"- and you're right it's a winner!

I have a few to post but I apologize for the picture quality. It was really too sunny to take good pics and my poor heuchera's are being crowded out by my many daylilies and columbines. They really should be moved or move some of the daylilies.

You are welcome!!! I don't remember where I got Veil of Passion. It might have been from a co-op on Dave's Garden many years ago.

@Hemlady ....

Those are beautiful plants. I'm still new at growing heucheras and wasn't sure if I could plant them in with other plants. Yours plants seem to be doing fine, so I am ready to experiment.

Smiles,
Lyn

@Hemlady, Cynthia ..

Do you have time to address the questions I put into a separate post "Novice Questions" ?

I am muddling through OK. I know our climates are different, but I sure would love to hear from someone who has more experience with these plants than I do.

Thanks and Smiles,
Lyn

They look very nice Cindy.

Vail of Passion is an older one from Terra Nova I think from around 2000 or 2001. http://www.terranovanurseries.com/media/heucheraveilofpassio...

Well Lyn, I really don't know that much about them. My expertise is daylilies which I have over 300 of. I just have a few heuchera's but if I can answer any questions I will try but no guarantees.

Cindy ...

I can answer lots of questions about roses ... Hilarious! I haven't grown any daylilies and these are my first heucheras. I am trying to learn about other plants because I don't want a mono garden.

I just hate to see plants die because of my ignorance.

Thanks for being willing to take a look.

Smiles,
Lyn

I have to admit Lyn that I really ignore my poor heucheras and they seem to do alright, lol.
