Villosa List

monet_gMay 23, 2012

Does anyone know where I can locate a comprehensive list of Hercs with villosa genes? I'm finding that many/most tags don't give background info.

I do not know if such list exists somewhere, but if the Heuchera is Terra Nova's introduction, you can see its species parents in the description.

For example, for Heuchera 'Black Beauty', the parents are villosa, micrantha.

Just wondering - how come you call them "hercs"?
Wouldn't you call them "heucs"?

Hercs are what most of the old Herc people have been calling them for years. I do it all the time it is just a good short cut nickname for me. lol

Thanks for the link. I try to buy mostly Villosa

H. v. 'Autumn Bride', 'Biddulph Brown', 'Chantilly', 'Creme de la Creme', 'Discolor', 'Emperor's Cloak', 'Melkweg', f.purpurea 'Bronze Wave', f.p. 'Palace Purple', f.p. 'Royal Red'
