creme brule heucheras turning green

bettyn_gardener(9 Sunset 14)April 5, 2012

I have potted them on my front deck - bright reflective light, but no direct sun. They seem to last longer in pots than in the ground - but after a few weeks after transplanting in the pot they start turning green. Any ideas?? Thanks for your help!

They are probably not getting enough light. Plants with variegated leaves or non-green leaves may revert to green when they need more light. Try moving your pot and see if that helps. Creme brules can take more light than some other heucheras.

This is a normal thing, just be happy they are alive. Green means they can take in more light. Mine is green too right now, but later on the season, will be more yellow brown.

Mine was green, but is now turning brown. I think it is part of natural process. Is your turning yet?
