I have admired heucheras from a far for many years and had one planted in my gravel bed for 5yrs but lost it to our long cold winter .

But my little delights in pots just love it .

You can see my photo of marmalade it has been stunning a real coat of many colours.

I will add photos later of all my heucheras.

I would like to grow them in hanging baskets.

Has anyone grown or grow them in hanging baskets?

Your wheelbarrow is really cool! I'm surprised they didn't grow in the ground but made it through the winter so well being so far above ground in the wheelbarrow.

Those are gorgeous Neil! What a mass of flowers in the lower right hand picture. I don't think a lot of people realize how pretty those little flowers really are. Love the mini ones in the lower left picture too.

Thank you Chris ,I am thrilled it came through our long cold winter.

Dear Carolyn, it was about 9-10 inches tall and at least 12 inches if not more across! But that is a guess as I was using a large lens from a long distance.
I thought Southern Comfort was an American drink. Rolling on the floor laughing
This new one called 'Solar Power' was massive. In fact it makes my salmon ones and 'Crystal Palace' look tiny.
Regards.
Neil.
