Love heucheras, and so happy to see this is a booming forum.

What would you say is your heuchera that has the prettiest blooms? I am especially interested in white or red, but would like to hear other colors too.

Thanks!

Thanks! I'm keeping a list. I would like some for my granddaughters garden, that she can add to bouquets. She just loves making bouquets.

I'm sure hot pink would be right up her alley.

Firefly - I lost that one a couple of years ago, but the flowers were so very bright red and the hummers just loved it!

Saturn has very nice white flowers, but the plant and foliage aren't overly impressive.

French Quarter and Peppermint Spice have pretty pink flowers.

Thanks Chris, those are lovely, and I'm not so concerned with the leaves in this instance, as I want the flowers for fillers for my granddaughters bouquets. I'll look for those you pictured.

Nice new avatar, Susan.

Here's my garden helper, and bouquet maker, Jenna. She's 9.

Aw, thanks. She's a good girl, but with spunk. Excellent in school, and has her second degree adult black belt in karate. We're very proud of her. I only have two grandchildren, Jamie is 12, and he loves to cook with me, so I have something to do with both of them when they're here.

We've had A LOT of Heucheras come and go in the last ten years here so I'll weigh in with a couple of my favorites. Smiling 'Paris' is at the top of my list - one because it's a prolific bloomer and two because the blooms last for months! Thumbs up

Although not one of the colors you're looking for I adore the flowers of 'Ginger Ale' - the lemon yellow color is so unique! Lovey dubby

'Cinnabar Silver' is another favorite and also a prolific bloomer - a unique 'cinnamon red', if that's even a color? Hilarious!
