What is it? Should it stay or go :blush:

    Heuchera, it should stay.  They eventually push themselves up further and further out of the ground.  I dig mine up every other year and rebury them more deeply, and I also divide any large clumps, to reinvigorate them.

    I like them, you can just break off a bit off,   that bit in the top left hand corner back to main plant so it’s got a chunk of root,  and push it right down to the leaves in a pot of compost and put some where sheltered for the winter. You’ll have lots of plants then.
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    It depends whether you like it or not  :)
    They do push themselves up and out, but you just replant them deeper, as said. Very easy to propagate, but watch for vine weevils if they're in pots. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Thankyou, I will replant deeper and see the overall look next year. ☺️

    I like them - took a chunk of one from my sister's garden this year whilst splitting hers and re-planting around her borders. It's done really well in a pot ready for a permanent spot next year.

    It's got a nice, deep purple foliage to contrast with the attention grabbers that my sis has growing alongside it :D

    Same here NB! Bought yet another one yesterday which I couldn't resist as it was such a beautiful colour and one I didn't already have named Mulberry.  :)
