I love Midnight Rose. The other three are all new to me. Kathy, I hope they all do well for you. Bronze Wave was the other one that I have that needs to be divided. That is the best most dependable plant.

Christine, In our climate the Heuchs never die back completely. They are always above ground, although pretty shriveled. They start putting out new tiny leaves around the end of March and are pretty fully leafed out by the beginning of May. Right now is the perfect time for us to divide them.

Nice plants Kathy. Looking forward to seeing what Brass Lantern looks like in a couple of weeks.

My heurchs had a rough winter. Almost total die back to the ground. Finally got out yesterday and cleaned em up and they look better already. I have a bunch that need dividing this year too. Spring has always worked good for me.

French Quarter - When this one first came out they were concerned that the colors weren't stable. It's always performed great for me.

I have most of those and just love them. French Quarter is the one that continues to elude me. Chris - any ideas as to where I can find French Quarter?

Thank you! I got French Quarter from http://www.eminencemeadows.com...
I see he still has it. Prices are right up there but that's the only place I could find it.

Thanks Stormy - It has been raining since last Saturday and today I ran out in between the downpour and first saw 4 more daylilies chewed down and then it caught my eye. I need to find out more about it. It's always something.


Chris - I just saw this http://cubits.org/WhosWhoSpotl... and blown away by your hypertufa and wreath. I really love it so maybe I'll give it a try!

I think you should give it a try Kathy! Both hypertufa and the wreaths are rather addicting. Big Grin There is a forum in the Sempervivum Cubit with lots of great ideas on making wreaths and other cool stuff. http://cubits.org/sedumandsemp... Lots of discussions about hypertufa in that Cubit too.

Christine I actually at first glance thought it was a kids rubber nose mask as it has thick walls like rubber. Just never seen anything like it. It has been raining here since last Saturday and this morning I found more of it in a daylily bed. I'm concerned about what causing this fungus; too much rain, mulch, both or something else. Just hope the heux are okay.
