Like this one and I ruled out Blood red (flowers deep red) and wonder if its Mint Julip (cream white )or Mint frost (creamy)?

Thanks Drc ...I don't remember red flowers more paler...
It's healthy, in deep shade, but not growing very quickly..
I must have had it a couple of years...

I've googled both...and Mint Julep is the closest match..
this is the info I copied....

Variety or cultivar: 'Mint Julep' _ 'Mint Julep' is a mound-forming, semi-evergreen, herbaceous perennial with lime- to bright green, silvery foliage and tall, arching stems bearing panicles of tiny, bell-shaped, white flowers in spring until summer.

Heuchera 'Mint Julep' is: Semi evergreen

Flower: White in Spring; White in Summer

Foliage: Variegated, Silvery-grey, Lime green, Bright-green in All seasons

Habit: Clump-forming

Companion planting: Plant astilbes with hostas and border phlox, which both like the same damp, shady conditions.

It is planted with Astilbe, and seems to be in the right conditions...just hasn't grown as much as my Purple Palace has...which is big now...
Thanks for your Help...

Glad its got a name now. I planted 10 last year, 8 in full sun and 100% compost have grown really big. the other 2 are in garden soil - 1 in shade and one in full sun and they have flowered but hardly grown.

Thanks everyone....What i'll do then later Drc, is lift it and fill the planting hole with compost, and replant, maybe it will like that better....
Another thought is to take a split from it and plant it in my Hosta -Woodland area...should blend really well...
It's name is now in my book....:)))
