Great name for this variety, with its spiral colouring reminiscent of a snail's shell.

Beautiful plant. I have this variety - but 2 plants have suffered from Thrips this year, they seem to worse this year for some reason.

A heuchera like this, Lori? I really like heucheras, and plan to have quite a few next year. Mark, I didn't know that begonias are prone to attack by thrips, thanx for this warning. Gillian, aren't begonias just great? And they have such brilliant names, too.
