tiny leaved heuchera

haremail Zone 6a(6a)October 26, 2012

Hi all,

I bought this heuchera this year and it had no label. It is tiny! It's leaves are only 1" long and stayed that way all summer. The whole plant is only about 6" accross. I have other full size heucheras and this is very different. I'd like to put a name to it. I just hope it makes it through the winter, I love it!

Thanks,

Jamie

I also have a heuchera that is much smaller than any of its neighbours. At first I thought it just wasn't thriving, but three years later it is still small, but seems healthy and happy - just a different growth habit. sorry - I don't have a name for mine either.

Pretty fall colors in your little guy.
Could it be Heuchera Mini Mouse?

Looks like Heuchera 'Petite Pearl Fairy'.

I think it is 'Petite Pearl Fairy'! Awesome, thank you! It didn't flower this year so I wanted to know what it was so I could get more if this little beauty doesn't make it through winter. Thank you!! :)

Glad I could help. I'm new to the site. Mine is in a 20 inch pot and makes it through the winter like a champ. I'm zone 7.

Love the little heuch. It is so cute.

Julia - why am I not surprised to see you here. Good to see you! I have been MIA for quite a while.

Julia -

I joined GW a number of years ago. I used to frequent the clematis forum here.

Hubby's health has been an issue since last Summer. We have been in and out of the Dr. office. I am hoping things are finally on the upswing with him.

I am hoping that all my heuchera made it through this past Summer. I will know better in the Spring.
