my collection of Heucheras


I love all the variety of these plants and have started collecting them . there are so many varieties with delicious names that i think it would take forever to collect them all [and a well stocked wallet !! ]
So far I have found that a lot of Garden Centres don’t stock very many [apart from Palace Purple which seems to be the most common ]
so if I see them anywhere I quickly pick them up, unless they are overpriced which I have noticed in a few places!!.
I have one that I don’t know the name of as I lost the label after buying a few at Gardening Scotland so any suggestions would be welcome

help please,I included all the photos exactly the same way but for some reason only the first one is showing!!! ??? It took me forever to upload the photos as well :o(((

Lovely show of Heucheras, I looked at marmalade and berry smoothie & sweet tea. Could have bought them all. But at £4.00 a plant and not certain if they will survive in my garden, I am waiting until next spring before I buy any more.

Try going back to edit, move a spot or two and then save & review and then publish again. This sometimes works.

Hi Helen... try going to edit your blog...

thanks TT you have given me my sanity back LOL
will I always have to do this with blog photos as I have never had trouble before ??

22 Jul, 2011


Hi again Helen..
It may be that when you wrote your headings e.g. PALACE PURPLE ... that the ! somehow disappeared...

As a general rule, just make sure you have a ! at each end of the complete photo reference..

... this way of using the ! is just something I've worked out myself by trial and error ..Lol.

Glad it has given you back your sanity... Lol. ;o) xxx

... wish I could solve my own hassles as easily !!!

22 Jul, 2011


I wish you could TT. You must be at your wits end, I hope and pray things get resolved soon.
Thanks again for your help

You have displayed your heuchera in a most interesting way Helen....I am a fan of the heuchera as well but don't have as big a collection as you.

I thought they were hardy and could be left out for winter but perhaps in your neck of the woods it would be too cold. This is my first year of having a garden and plants to worry about overwintering so hope my heuchera will survive in the ground. I don't have a heated greenhouse to overwinter them so they'll have to get on with

Happy gardening, Helen.

I will leave them out as well Whistonlass as they are hardy and keep my fingers crossed that they survive . The 2 that I had from last year came through last years snow and low temperatures.

I found some lovely heucheura at a garden centre near Derby, and came away with "peppermint" which has lovely variegated leaves. I have it in the ground but in the last week I've noticed the leaves are being eaten by something :(
