Susan, this is the best its ever looked. Unfortunately it took years to get this far, and I'm wondering if it's just the weather that made it so nice this year.

I found that my Georgia Peach started doing better when I put in in part sun. Is your plant getting more sun than usual or is it warmer than usual.

It was warmer than usual for a few weeks, then it turned cold again. In the high 20's at night even. I've had to move several of mine around to find a place they're happy.

Thanks Susan. I've got Miracle too, but it isn't nearly as nice as Tiramisu this year. Guess that one hasn't found it's happy place yet. Hilarious!

Thanks Bob, Glad I stopped by. Sure have seen some nice heucheras today. Gonna start working on another wish list, these plants sure will brighten up a Hosta bed. ILoveHostas shipped my order so I should be getting three this week. Hurray!

What a gorgrous, gorgeous color, Chris! I thought maybe it was really Miracle. And it's great that you shared your photo as I was thinking that my Tiramasu had more red coloring this year than last year in the garden.

These 2 I believe are Tiramisu and Miracle. I moved them both last year and forgot which was which before I had even tamped the soil down. What do you think. Tiramisu (?) is just getting started.
