I picked up a couple new to me this year. I plan to continue my winter storage pot process since I have been so successful with winter survival.

Although they were all clearance or sale plants for $5 or less since I have had such good success I do not mind buying them for more than $5 now.

I will take ;pics when the weather clears up.

Heucherella Hopscotch
Heucherella Leapfrog
Heuchera 'Circus'
Heuchera blackberry crisp
Heuchera 'Beaujolais'

What did you get?

I did not get anything this Fall.Leapfrog and Hopscotch were ones I bought this past Spring. I did not have luck with others from the Crisp series so did not try that one.The others I have had for a few years,both good growers.

Cinta, you got some good deals. I bought a few new ones this spring. Nothing this fall. Not remembering what I bought but they came form in the country garden and gifts. I think they were 9.00 and I got free shipping this spring.

@springcolor, I did not order anything this year. I was busy trying to sale to houses. I was in Lowes and Home Depot buying things to fix the houses and would stop at the plants.

There were a lot not moving at Lowes and they put them on their clearance racks for 3.00 and $5.00. I think there are a lot of people like me not willing to give them $20 for them since they are iffy for our climate.

@NJBob you know how I do not buy Terra Nova and Crisp is their series. TN Hercs do not last in my garden either. I only paid $3.00 for it so I will try it in my winter pot storage system and see if that works. It did good for the last two months.

I really do not have a problem with TN plants. They produce a lot of good ones for this area , it is more a case of checking the background of the different cultivars to see which ones work in your area.

I do not have problems with any other plants from them just the Hercs.
