Heuchera 'Spotlight'?

Heuchera 'Spotlight'? (heuchera)

Photo taken back on 8 Mar 2011

Now it's got beautiful pink autumn colour, quite unexpected.

Looks like Spotlight! .... I've had it in the garden for a couple of years - it doesn't seem to like too much light, if fact it hasn't done well at all up here in Northumberland! Also prone to vine weevil... although most are,especially in pots.

Still love them though, they work well as ground cover under my bamboos!

I have this one Tommy, a gift from a's still young, and in a planter...

Mine is still young too; we bought it in Feb or March this year. It hasn't grown much so far but it turned pinkish now (as you know) and it's very pretty, that's enough :)

Thank you for helping me to identify it. Now I'm sure it's 'Spotlight'.

Vine weevils are evil, aren't they? Hate them to bits!!

It's a bit surprising to know that your heuchera thrives under your bamboos, because in my garden, bamboo rhizomes are so intensive that only weeds can live under/around them. I planted several lilies under my bamboos but only one flowered for the first year and nothing came up afterward. However, maybe it was only because I didn't water them at all.

It looks like my 'spotlight' Tommy....There is a Heucherella called 'electra' that looks almost the same...slightly larger leaves on the Heucherella....

Moti, thank you for the info!
'Electra' looks very similar but it seems it's definitely 'spotlight'! Nice to know the ID! Thanks again :)

Thank you Scotkat!
I'm going to upload its latest photo soon. It's got prettier with more pink on the leaves :)

You said it Simbad! I think both colours are nice; fresh lime green in spring/summer and blushing pink in autumn/winter.
