I had to take some pictures of my gardens today for an album I'm putting together. I thought I'd post the ones that contained heuchera and relatives here. Enjoy!
'Rave On' flower
Carnival Watermelon keeps on surprising me with its color changes.
I like the contrast of the white flowers and red leaves on 'Rio'
Even more heuchs
Milan is fast becoming a fave
More heuchera and heucherella
...and more still
Heucherella Cracked Ice
Heucherella Brass Lantern with yet another color change!
Great...Thanks FF, now I'm craving sorbet...! ; )
Great pics, FF. Thanks for sharing. What is the name of the purple Heuch by the trellis?
HeuchHogan-if you're referring to the one in the fifth picture down, that one is 'Sugar Plum'.
Lol, Don. (Said in Homer Simpson voice) "mmmmmmm...sorbet"
Yes, that's the one. Now I'm craving Sugar Plums and a Berry Smoothie.
Yes, HH, everyone needs at least one Berry Smoothie! It's in my top 5 for excellent color. Sugar Plum is more subtle, but it really glows in the garden and can be easily spotted even from a distance. Both are good growers, too.
Mmmm, what a delicious collection of heuchies you have! I love 'em. I also have Autumn Leaves, which wasn't a great doer in the Hosta Garden Under the Tree. Now that it's moved to a sunnier location, it seems to be growing better.
Frost is doing beautifully in a pot and drew compliments from a neighbor today. It is surrounded by mini hostas Pure Heart, Holy Mouse, Cracker Crumbs and Appletini.
I found that my Autumn Leaves needed more sun as well, Esther. Otherwise, it fails to thrive.
I love heuchera Frost. It packs quite a punch of color for being such a small plant. I can't grow heuchs in containers here very well (too wet), but I bet it would be perfect in a container with mini hostas.

Thank you for posting all these beautiful pictures. They are truly great treats, particularly after a long day of stressful work at the office. Thank you for taking the time and sharing these beauties with us!
where did you find the blue rocks to pair with cracked ice?
Thanks, Dave. Here in WA state, River Rock is lying all over the place (particularly at construction sites). I find if I ask real nicely, the guys will usually let me grab a bucketful for free. I also walk a lot, so I find a lot of the rocks lying on the ground. I'm always coming home with bulging pockets.
Most of the rock is bluish gray, but it tends to look very blue up next to a plant like Cracked Ice.
