The photos look so different! I have seen some variation on leaf colors on some of my cultivars, but never this much.

The 2 in the middle are the same plant , and Lynn is going to double check the one on the right to see if plant was mis - marked. Some do have a big color change from summer to winter like Heuchera Delta Dawn.

I don't know, but the reddish one is lovely. I like the green too.

I have not had the best of luck with heucherella. Most Heuchera will survive and do well, but not heucherella. Crying

Carolyn I had t mailed Lynn to check and she said that they were Labeled Yellowstone falls and most were turning yellow. I had also suggested Redstone and she said she would go back and check again.

Juli the newer Heucherella with Villosa in the breeding are much improved over what you could get just a couple of years ago.

Oh, that sounds great. I will look for them this year! I love daylilies, peonies, iris etc... but deep down, I am a "foliage" girl.

Bob, Does 'Alabama Sunrise' have Villosa in the breeding? It's doing very well here in shade under an old Japanese Maple.

Alabama Sunrise was the first Villosa hybrid that Terra Nova released. One of the advantages of Villosa is they can take quite a bit of sunlight.
