How many do you have?

Just how serious is your heuchera habit? I have about 20 varieties plus a few duplicates. I have far to go! Think I'm going to need a bigger garden.

I have about 50-60 varieties of heuchera, heucherella and tiarella... plus one Mukdenia... a cousin.

I never counted. Maybe about 40 different ones but I have a lot of duplicates. So there are about 100 throughout the gardens. I am on 4 acres so there is a lot of filling going on out there. lol

I'm not positive but I think I have over thirty.

I don't have many - maybe 15 or so and a few cultivars are duplicates. One or two are from a NOID mother that was in the garden when I moved to this house 20 years ago.

I have 76 Heucheras, Heucherella's and Tiarella's....I think I have an addiction problem. I'm glad I decided to start labeling them when I had about 5. Originally, the plan was to only label my Hosta and Echinacea.....I think Astilbe's are next...lol

I hadn't counted before, but I found 18 different varieties, which is surprising, because I've just recently realized how much I love these little cuties! Well on my way to serious problems, here!!

Maybe 15. A small enough number that I didn't think I needed to label the purplish red ones...WRONG.
I'm already confused on which is which. That's one chore I will be figuring out soon when I take some pics.

This prompted me to go out and count my heucheras, I have 147 planted and dozens of off shoots and roots potted to give away. I didn't count how many are repeats but I know there are dozens. I just cant get enough of these babies!

Oh my goodness, Lisa! We want to see pictures!!

Michelle, I also have some purple ones that I'm not sure what they are, either! (insert red face here). I know which one is Palace Purple, but I don't think they all are. I'm sensing a "Purple NOID" thread coming....

Good question. I lost a few of the new treasures I bought three years when the new baby, my DF's cancer, and the whole house reno took over and I forgot to water. :-( So I must be down to about 70 or so now. I don't generally buy more than one or two of any variety as my theory is that I'll have more room for new intros if I only buy one of each. Oh, addiction. ((sigh))

Ok, I can see we definitely need to start a Heuchera Alphabet here. C'mon you hard core fanatics, get to enabling us newbies!!

Some rather serious collectors here - so a great source of information for the rest of us! I hope we're all taking our cameras to the garden...........

I have 46 varieties of heucheras, 6 heucherellas and 5 tiarellas. "Palace Purple' self seeds like crazy, so I use it as a filler everywhere. It even seeded and grew in a crack in a retaining wall.

Wierd, I can post pictures directly from my desktop to the hosta forum but not here, as the CHOOSE button has disappeared.
