Heucherella collection


By siris


The first 2 have a habit, which is described as ground cover. I think it just looks messy and the long stems are so brittle. Dottyd, who helped with a possible identification puts hers in a pot on a shelf/stand so they can cascade downwards. That sounds better to me.
The original plant was planted on the level in the shade but I divided it and put this division on the top tier of the rock garden, to cascade over the rock on the left. Not an ideal place because it will be exposed to full sun in summer, and could frazzle. The other piece I have left in the shade on the level.

Possible name Yellow Stone Falls.

I thought I had bought from Solent Garden Fayre, two years ago (didn’t go this year) and the vendor, who was a bit harassed said it was Sweet Tea.

This is the trailing stem, tied up to a stick because it was getting damaged and covered in bird droppings. Will need to relocate I think.
Possibly Red Stone Falls.

Or is this Heucherella ‘Sweet Tea’, flowering now to three and a half ft tall, I don’t think so, think it needs to go into the Heuchera collection.

Any thoughts would be welcome.

Heucherella Freefolk Stars should be with these, but for some reason, best known to me, I had included it in with the Tiarella!! Senior Moment.

Yellow leaves with a red mid rib, still has it’s label attached.

And it is flowering now.

Thank you Linda, I have already been looking at Karen's Heuchera photos for reference and had some help regarding names from her. I think the last is probably Kassandra.

I think you are right, difficult at this time of the year because the foliage does change colour, but any with a trai!ing habit are usually falls!

The last plant, has never coloured up like your Sweet Tea, Dd. I think it is a Heuchera.
