species question

When you look at the Terra Nova website and go to a certain heuchera to see the species, what does it mean when it has 2 or 3 different ones listed?
I've been looking for villosa but several will have villosa listed 3rd with other names before it.
Does that mean it has some of all those species in it?

RE: species question

it usually means it can tolerate more water, or sun or size, terra nova has the species and you can click on the words and it tells you on the top of the picture what it means.

RE: species question

Yes, it means the plant in question was bred from all the species listed.

RE: species question

IOW, it is a hybrid or the result of cross breeding between multiple species.
