Heuchera sanguinea

Heuchera sanguinea  (Heuchera sanguinea (Coral Bells))

This came as a cutting from my mums garden. it was originally planted in 1935 and has continued to grow well. A more delicate form than the newer modern one in my opinion.

I keep propagating it just to make sure. my brother has shed loads of it and he keeps letting me take bits. One fav flower from my childhood.

oh no mookins on the contary. he is my hero and has given me loads of plants from the family garden. when ever i visit i take him things from my garden and i usually come away with bits from his [formerly my mums garden]. he even gave me his digital camera when he upgraded it, rather than trading it in for a discount. i love him to bits.

I think this may be heuchera bressingham hybrids
Its about the right age am it can coime withpink flowers bright red flowers and a mixture of colours because its a hybrid seed variety it doesnt come true if you like from seed so it comes as mixed.
If you see what I mean.
It could also be chiqui but i would have to see it closer to be able to tell.
If it is chique it is lovely and is a good flowerer
Hope this helps.
I would need a leaf and flower to comapare in the summer Its difficult to tell in pictures sometimes
Looks a really helthy plant.
I get on well with my brother too he is 12 years older than me :)
