I'm a Heucheraddict!!


I posted this as a question but thought it’d also make a rather good blog entry, so here it is again; pardon me if you’ve already read it. :-)

Greetings, fellow foliage fans! I’ve discovered Heucheras – I’ll never be the same again!

It started with a cutting that my neighbour allowed me to take last week as a thank you for helping her dig out her dandelions. I’d never seen the plant before, so after a bit of googling to find out what the plant was, I instantly fell in love with Heucheras!!

I’ve since ordered a number of varieties (which haven’t arrived yet) and am keen to add the cutting to the collection, therefore I need it’s name. I’ve looked at countless photos and my money is on “Palace Purple” though I’m not 100%.

It’s very purple on the underneath of the leaves and the stems, but quite brown/purple on the leaf fronts.

I’m hoping someone will either confirm my suspicions or tell me otherwise….

…fingers crossed :-)

Kind regards,

Kat – the “Heucheraddict.”

It's very nice. I like the colour.
I have one only but I've lost it's name lol. I thought it had died in the winter but it is now recovering and has some leaves appearing.
