Heuchera 'Marmalade'


Heuchera 'Marmalade'

At least I think it is Marmalade. I have lost many Heucheras over the years but a handful survive.

I’ve given up trying to identify so many of them...there are so many that are Very similar. Its very lovely, whatever it’s called!

Karen, I found a very dark Plum colour one today, and that was only because the white flowers were popping up by a Sedum so it will need moving.

Amy, this one loves where it is in the garden. Shame I have lost some others.

As you know, Heucheras used to be one of my obsessions! lol! But I have found them very difficult to care for. First there's the dreaded weevils which seem to love them even more than I do. Then there's the drainage, which must be perfectly free. Then there's the cold, which takes all the energy from them in winter. Then there's the rust, which covers them with orange spots. And finally, the growth habit which means they have to be dug up, stripped, split, replanted every couple of years. So my love affair with Heucheras has come to an end now I'm afraid. But I still love to see them really well-grown on Vicki's stand at the flower shows. They can be so beautiful and the bees absolutely adore them. On balance, I think best grown in pots.

They really are too time consuming in a garden the size of yours Karen. What are you thinking of planting in their place?

I'm gradually replacing them with more dwarf rhododendrons Shirley. You can get some really teeny ones. :)

That should look lovely ...

They seem to do well in that corner. There are also some geraniums, primulas and of course the lovely Hellebores
too.

I know exactly what you mean about recognising them Karen I'm the same , I'm especially bad with Ferns I have the labels but I have a kind of blind spot at being able to tell the difference :o(

I think this one and Caramel are excellent varieties, very dependable....
