I like their photos, but I don't trust them. They have duped me too many times.

That they have. I have come to accept the fact that they almost never match the pictures.

I love how they have Gaillardias behind them. You can tell the entire photos are faked. Someone actually picked blooms and stuck them back there. Look how the blooms line up exactly with the Heuchera. Something is wrong. No Gaillardia blooms in perfect rows like that.

My plants often don't match growers pics. Sometimes I attribute to different growing conditions sometimes I wonder. I've noticed that my own closeups sometimes look better than a plants general impression in the garden. My Midnight Rose is a nice plant but I wish I had gotten Select, much more impressive and MR is only as nice as the pics at nose to leaf distance for me. Some do exceed the web site pics, especially Miracle. Season doesn't seem to matter either. Which of yours do you think exceed expectations?

Here Miracle is solid Green and looks nothing like the pictures I have seen. Delta Dawn is much better. i guess the climate matters with Miracle. My Midnight Rose looks great. I'm happy with that one. 'Electra' doesn't get the bright colors like the tag here. It must be too warm.

Heuchera 'Plum Pudding' and 'Paprika' are impressing me right now! I really like the colors of both. 'Georgia Peach' looks good too.

I wish you hadn't mentioned Georgia Peach. Last year it did really well in it's new home. This year the rabbits keep nibbling it to nubs and every time I lay down cayenne it seems to rain. Plum Pudding isn't bad here but Electra is one I'd like to try.

From what I read it sometimes takes Miracle into it's 3rd year to show color. Electra shows color in cool weather early spring and late fall. To me Heucherella Gunsmoke and Brass Lantern are better looking then their pictures.

Electra show some color in the Fall here, but not like the pictures that Terra Nova posted. It's not even half as good. That's kind of silly selling a plant that takes 3 years to get its proper coloring. Some of these don't even live 3 years. I'm just going to use it as a lime green Heuchera and pretend I don't know what it's supposed to look like. LOL. Delta Dawn is getting better color every day. It looks like what I thought Miracle was going to be!

Both really nice Bob. That September photo of BL shows really nice color. What's in the upper right corner? Blue-grey with dark green veining.

Evan, try the millorganite, it does last longer than the pepper, three or four rains. Plus it's a low dose fertilizer so don't use any thing else while you are using that. Don't want to over fertilize, right? Whistling

Green Grin! Clint, thanks for being our southern guinea pig, I know if it does well for you it will do well for me. I tip my hat to you.
