Does anyone have Miracle? Know how wide it gets?

Does it turn the rosy color they show in the pics? Mine is green right now?

Deanna,

I have miracle and it's a beautiful mix of colors right now. Is yours in full sun??? I find the ones that are in full sun don't get that great coloration.

I have Miracle, but I think I lost a big chunk of it as it's just tiny tiny leaves right now..... and they're green


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

Mine is starting to change to the red now...

HEUCHERA MIRACLE

Will try to remember to post a picture of it later in the season.

Floota, how much sun does yours get?

Mine only gets about 2 hours of morning sun.

Deanna


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

Mine gets a little more than that - maybe 4-5 hours of sun.


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

I have it. It doesn't look as good as the picture on the tag.

Delta Dawn is an awesome replacement for this one. It has much better color more of the time.


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

This is miracle in morning sun, maybe two hours a day.

Here it's solid Green! I was told the temperature effects the color of Miracle. I'm in a warmer zone. Delta Dawn is beautiful though! I'm sure they will look good at other times of year though.


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

Unless Delta Dawn is a villosa or Americana hybrid, I won't even go there. Those are the ones that seem to survive here.

It does. It's a very good plant.


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

Forgot to mention, I grow Miracle in 3 different places. Two of the plants grow in more shade and are still chartreuse. One is getting just a tad of color. This one must show more color with a bit more sun.
Today I saw a heuchera I was not familiar with : Autumn Leaves. Does anyone grow it? I was tempted, but wanted to get some info. first!
Personally, most heucheras seem to do OK in this climate. The one I've totally given up on is 'Snow Angel.' Someone told me it was a wimp. I can't get it to survive in this climate.


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

I have Autumn Leaves. It gets a little morning sun. It's good so far.


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

I have it. Maybe it is getting too much sun but never got bigger. Says somewhat green and small


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

Can you even see mine in the middle? It's being taken over by Obsidian (love it) on the right, and a current unknown (until I find the tag) on the left. The white flowers above them is a dogwood. Sun until afternoon. My Miracle seems to be in need of its own miracle. Guess it needs to be moved and pampered.

I have Miracle and it is colored up but Photobucket is giving me dead links so I won't link a photo.

I agree, Snow Angel is a wimp.

RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

Buyorsell, if you've got the picture on your computer, you can download it directly to GW. It's a new thing.

 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

Really? I haven't tried to post a photo for two weeks because all of my photobucket links were dead though I could see the photos in the preview.

I don't see any way to upload the photo to this thread from my computer.


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

I think that is a trial in Hostas only, or maybe another one that I don't visit, but it's not available in this one yet.

RE: re Does anyone have Miracle?

You're right, I don't see it on this forum.

RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

I also have it and its about 3 years old in partial sun, acidic soil, about a 2 foot spread and it was never green for me.

Today, I moved my little sad Miracle from the pic I posted above. The dirt in that pic is hard, dry clay, so it's nice to see that some heuchs, like Obsidian, are doing fine in the clay. Miracle sure wasn't, its root system was smaller than when I purchased it. It should be much happier now, nice big amended new hole.

Gnome, is it possible tags were switched on your pic above? The one in your picture sure looks more like Caramel.

 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

I was going to say the same thing. THe above pic DOES look like Caramel instead of Miracle!


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

Plantgnome,

I agree with the others, your pic looks exactly like my Caramel..

RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

Buyorsell,
Why you can't load your pictures? Here is your Heuchera from Photobucket - beautiful BTW :o)


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

Could be-it has been known to happen LOL. So someplace I have Miracle and don't know where it is. Have to look around tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up.


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

I just ran outside before its too dark-I think it melted away. Oh well now I have two Caramels in the same bed.


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

I don't know what is going on. I have linked hundreds of photos on GW and all of a sudden all I get is dead links.

I just tried again on the thread about trailing huecherellas.

I see the photo just fine on the preview but then error message after I post it.


 o
RE: Does anyone have Miracle?

I have both Miracle and Tiramisu. Both start green or yellow green in the spring, but get the red coloration on new leaves when they start growing again, but only while temperatures are cool/cold. As soon as it warms up, they develop solid colored leaves. Then, in fall cooler temperatures, the red coloration reappears. So I think if you are in a warm climate, you will have little or no red in the leaves.

I have miracle , just planted it and 7 other Heuchera. My miracle is all green right now but have planted it where it will get morning sun and shade in the afternoon. Seems a lot of these kind of plants like that. We shall see what happens in the next few weeks with all of them .
