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.

Two years ago I filled a new garden section with Heucheras that I got at the end of the year for bargain prices. They didn't make the winter. Now (cause I'm insane?) this past summer I planted more in the same area. I'm hoping that because they were in longer and had more time to establish they'll come up again. But they are also outside near the door where my dogs come running out. They don't do their duty on them, but possibly they're getting trampled on a bit too much. We'll see this spring!

Does anyone have a web page where I could identify heucheras? I'm curious about size and sun. What I buy at the greenhouse doesn't always come back looking quite as lush as they were when I bought them.
