Bought 'Blondie in Lime' last year. It has been an amazing plant. Loving this bright green new growth with the old growth.

They look good, Rio is one of the ones that as soon as the hot humid weather came faded very quickly. My plants are still all flat as pancakes from the Winter but should start perking up soon with some nicer weather the last couple of days.

Those are pretty. I do not think I have seen Fall Festival. It is fun to see people talking Heucheras

JoAnn this is my second try with Sweet Tea. The first one was really large and I paid 20 bucks for it and the deer loved it. Then we had a dry hot summer that year and I did not water the gardens in its weak state it died before Fall arrived.

This one was a 2.99 purchase from Santa Rosa last year. It looked like a little liner plant but I thought it was cheap enough to give it another try. I planted it in good soil and fertilized it and it seemed to do good over the winter in a pot. I will see how it does this summer in shade. I had it in a lot of sun before.

My 'sweet tea' has been a good grower for many years. It gets morning sun. Just my 2 cents but I would not fertilize the Heuchera much.

The compost should be all they need for the growing season.

I agree very light on the fertilizer
That Fall Festival looks very nice I have not seen it around here. Might start getting tough finding any new ones around here the 2 bigger garden centers around here both went out of business in the last couple of weeks. I loved the one place they used to bring in over 30 varieties of Heuchera and Echinacea every season.
