I have not seen the new ones for sale yet , but I think I love Hosta . net will have all the new Terra Nova ones this summer. I also have the same ones coming from Santa Rosa. What a shame about French Quarter it is one of my favorites. Give them a while some die back all the way in the winter and by me start coming back in April.

Thumb of 2012-03-16/springcolor/4d41d5
Fire Chief. I'm sure this will be beautiful by June
Thumb of 2012-03-16/springcolor/64472e
Not sure about this one but have hopes that it will still grow.

This is Heucherella 'Golden Zebra' I'm sure it will be back this June.
Looking sad right now Sad
Don't pull to soon, they may grow from the bottom. I think this all depends on the parents of the hybrid.

They look good to me springcolor. I lost FQ to crown rot. I'm not home a lot so it's much harder to deal with issues well after they first start. I suspect black vine weevils got to Shanghai but it has a little piece of life so we will see.

I have issues with the weevils too. Most of mine are in pots. I'm going to treat this spring for those guys. These plants are a bit expensive. When I suspect weevil I dig it up and look. If I find the weevil then i cut all the rotted root and replant the part that is left and clean. Not sure if I expained that right. If you cut all the stem and root of that the weevil ate then sometimes it will root and survive.
FQ is a hard one to lose, its one of my favorite of all the heuchera.

A few times I thought I'd lost my FQ too, but it always seems to pull through. Not the fastest growing one I have though.

I got Fire Alarm and Paprika. If you have Autumn Leaves, you basically have Fire Alarm as it is just a selection out of Autumn Leaves. To be honest I can't see any difference in the two.

Paprika is awesome! It has a nice orange color to it now. Delta Dawn is another good one with better color than Miracle.

Thanks Clint. I do have Autumn Leaves and so I will get a couple Paprika instead. I have been moving some around and wanting to put Paprika and Gunsmoke in this bed before I put the mulch on. Since picture was taken I removed the hosta behind the fern and the daylily in front. The handle on the polka dot coffee mug broke when I tripped over a shovel so it's partially buried for a toad house.

First photo 5/19. Second Photo 5/30 with Cajun Fire, Blackberry Crisp and Gunsmoke added.

The ferns have really grown in 2 weeks so I need to move heux forward. Should of known better than to think I would ever have walking space.

Love your colors. I started to get a fern like that. I know I want it now. LOL.

I tend to plant things too close together. I am trying to stop but I can't!

Hi guys - The fern is Autumn Brilliance fern and I bought them from santarosgardens 2 yrs ago on sale for $4.29.

GHS has it: http://www.gardenharvestsupply.com/ProductCart/pc/Potted-Ath...

Southern Comfort has grown to monster size measured at 19" tall by 26 wide today. Can't wait to see Paprika. Haven't heard from ilh about a ship date but I'm leaving Wednesday for awhile so my neighbor said she will take photos and babysit them.

Chris - The coffee mug is a tall skinny one from Kohls. They had marked them down from $8 to $2.50 and I bought the last 7 with a 30% code. I'm down to 4 and they don't carry them now. At least the "toad house" color coordinates with the heux.
