This is why I love Heuchera

vivian_2010October 20, 2012

Finally had some time to take pictures today. Here are my heucheras. I love their beautiful foliage and color, particularly at this time of year when most of other plants started to show serious aging in color and appearance.

Georgia Peach

Fire Alarm (The brightest Heuchera I've ever seen)

Obsidian

Frost

Nice! I really like that Fire Alarm. I saw that in mixed pots with exotic mums today at the Chicago Botanic Garden. I need to get me some of those! WHat color is it when it is not fall? Just deeper or darker?

I only had Fire Alarm since late summer this year so not sure how it would look in spring and summer. It gets several hours of hot afternoon sun, same location as Georgia Peach, whose color has been the best in spring and fall, but does fade somewhat into a lighter peach during the hot summer weeks.

Fire Alarm is truly alarming! And I see that Paris has a new bloom showing up. My Georgia Peach is reblooming as well. You're absolutely right - almost everything else in my garden is done for the season, but the heucheras look healthy and happy. Now if we just had some photo worthy weather....

Jan, My Canjun Fire has been blooming since April. Today I noticed a recent new spike with flowers. Amazing. At this time of year. This is my first season with Paris so excited to see the bloom. Hope it has some time to flower before weather gets too cold.
