Does anyone know where I can locate a comprehensive list of Hercs with villosa genes? I'm finding that many/most tags don't give background info.

I do not know if such list exists somewhere, but if the Heuchera is Terra Nova's introduction, you can see its species parents in the description.

For example, for Heuchera 'Black Beauty', the parents are villosa, micrantha.

RE: Villosa List

Just wondering - how come you call them "hercs"?
Wouldn't you call them "heucs"?

RE: Villosa List

Thanks, Alina.
Vanessa, I guess I was in a hurry.

RE: Villosa List

Hercs are what most of the old Herc people have been calling them for years. I do it all the time it is just a good short cut nickname for me. lol

Thanks for the link. I try to buy mostly Villosa

RE: Villosa List

I just happen to have Dan Heim's book handy. These were all listed as Huechera villosa cultivars:

H. v. 'Autumn Bride', 'Biddulph Brown', 'Chantilly', 'Creme de la Creme', 'Discolor', 'Emperor's Cloak', 'Melkweg', f.purpurea 'Bronze Wave', f.p. 'Palace Purple', f.p. 'Royal Red'
