Heuchera sanguinea is lovely under rated I think
This one has been used to get red red flowers in some of the original crosses.
This is a species variety one of approx 55 that are known I suspect there are more out there.
Hope you arent going to ask me how many cultivars there are because I am not 100% sure this is something I have been trying to work out for a while.
The trouble is they keep adding and just as I thought i knew them all I discover an other very old cultivar that I have never heard of.
The actual totaol may tke a few more years to be sure lol
Hundreds and hundreds anyway
Oh my gosh we are going to need a bigger garden for the national collection :0
