|Here is the heuchera discussions forum.|

|Hello from Nebraska! I just joined up here and am navigating around to see everything. This caught my eye because I love growing heucheras. I have a lot of them and there is always room for more!! I have a lot of shade, where they thrive here in zone 5. I love buying new and different varieties when I can find them.|

|Hi Carolyn! Just dropping by to say hello and good luck with your cubit!!|

|My Heuchera photos are a mess, with missing labels. This weekend I'll work on sorting them to post if you are starting a photo thread.|

|Hi Carolyn, just dropping by to wish you good luck with your cubit.|
I have quit a few Heuchrea growing near my watergarden, and got a few from Stormy at the swap last year.
They can be as addictive as potato chips. LOL

|Welcome Chickadee and thank you everyone. |
Chris - I have found that you are right, collecting heuchera is as addictive as potato chips. Between what I have coming from a co op and what I already have, I have counted 61 and I am still looking at varieties I don't have.....
This one is Prince of Orange. I picked him up last October.

|Oh, Carolyn, My Princes dried up and died over the summer. Don't let yours get too dry. They were in shade, but got late afternoon sun.|

|Mary - Prince of Orange went in late - Mid Octoberish. We will see what happens over the winter. The lady at the nursery told me if the leaves were not withered, then the roots were still taking. So I jumped on it. He was half price.....|

|I can't wait until my plants wake up from this long winter and I can get some nice photos to share.|
Any of you have Green Spice? It is one of my best!
Feb 7, 2010 6:46 PM CST
|Chicadee - |
Green Spice has been on my wish list for quite awhile. Do you have any pictures? I'd love to see some.
Feb 7, 2010 6:56 PM CST
|sadly, at this time I don't. I will take some as soon as I can! I have three plants and they are buried under quite a bit of snow still...|
I used to work at a nursery, and I coveted all the Heucheras daily.
The Green Spice I could not resist. Love em!
Another I love is my Midnight Rose, oh so pretty!

|Chick, That's one of the few that I don't have. I love Midnight Rose too.|

|I looked for pictures of the Green Spice we planted in the Heuchera bed in 2008 but unfortunately I didn't label the pics and I'm not sure if this is actually GS or Mystic Angel. They're very similar and it's hard to tell them apart! |

|This is an older photo of some in pots and I KNOW it's Green Spice We've had a few here and there in the gardens for years and it IS a lovely Heuchera! When they introduced Peppermint Spice I thought I'd love it because the only drawback of GS is the boring color of the flowers. PS has lovely pink flowers but it hasn't proven to be as vigorous as GS. |

|Debbie, Wonderful photos! I hope I can find a Peppermint Spice, sounds pretty. Your pics are making me lonesome for my plants! I also like that Mystic Angel, never seen it. Where do you find your Heucheras? The nuseries here have limited selection. |
Anyone have a good source?

|Hello, I'm Donna/dmac---joined a bit ago but haven't had a lot of time to come back and check out the site:)|
I first started w/ heuchera when I bought a 6 pack of Palace Purple at walmart for $2 about 10 years ago--I plopped 3 each in big square pots and one container is still going strong:lol:
The co-ops I've stumbled across have allowed me to try others but I think I get too ambitious about how many I buy and can really tend too so uh, well, I get to buy new-well, often I have had Miracle survive my care after I forgot where it was--it filled out beautifully without any care from me. I have a noid that is flourishing as well. Still love attempting all the gorgeous new and older ones--I'm hard to discourage in that way:lol:

|Hello all, I am known as Kenboy and only have one Heuchera ( Sothern Comfort ) that Maggi got two years ago. It has done very well here in Texas and I will be looking for more that can take out heat. I see this sight has not had much action as of late but also know Cubits.org is really just getting started. |
Does anyone know if Heucheras are deer resistant?
Apr 11, 2010 3:56 PM CST
I think they are deer resistant, however, I live in town and don't get many deer here in town. Southern Comfort is a beauty. I purchased her last year in a co op. Hopefully when summer really gets going, we will be able to get some trading going. Maybe you can add to your heuchera collection. Any pictures of Southern Comfort?
May 13, 2010 3:43 PM CST
|A month late but yes I do have a picture of Southern Comfort;|
May 14, 2010 1:33 AM CST
|Nice one Ken. I love it because the leaves get so big. The Spring winds really made a mess out of mine this year. Can you add your picture to the database? I'll set up the rest of the info for you and if you want to change anything you can.|
