Name that Heuchera !!!! Can anyone tell me which this on is ? Having looked at pictures on GOY there seem to be a few that are very similar but I wondered if the flowers will be distinctive. Two plants were given to me by my neighbour and now I am hooked & want to get some more in a variety of colours. The flowers heads are white/cream.




Plum Royale - Midnight Bayou - or Obsidian. I admit to seeing a couple of pages on heucheras in the Gardeners' World magazine!

There are quite a few that this could be, they look the same.

I'll take a stab at it and say that it might be 'Purple Petticoats' if the leaves get more wavy during the winter, it probably is?!

I'd say Purple Palace but as Louise says, there are quite a few that are very similar.
Have you seen 'Miracle'? I just put that one in last fall. The leaves start out charteuse and then get reddish as they age.

I also have a similar looking one called Silver Scrolls

Thanks to you all for replying. I have Googled and the closest one I can see is Licorice !!! It has only been in since early this year so no ideas what it does in winter conditions. I'm just going to buy as many different colours as I can. There is a specialist Heuchera site and there are endless choices on there but I have seen some at my local garden centre so will start there.
