Last year I purchased Heucharas for the first time. I have a Cherry Cola and a dark purple one. At the moment I am loving them and wondered what varieties you have and if you are a fan. If not a fan is there anything I need to know about them? t i a

    What varieties? Currently I have Redstone Falls x 3, Caramel, Boysenberry, Kimono x 2, Buttered Rum, Walnut, Red Rover, Apple Crisp, Plum Falls x 2, Forever Purple x 2 and Blood Red. Some of those are actually heucherellas (heuchera and tiarella hybrid) but there's very little difference visually. If I could, I'd have every variety going 😂

    Another obsessionally collectable plant! My faves so far this year have been the Little Cutie 'sweet tart' and heucherella appalachian falls;  the sweet tart is a dear little (literally little!) thing that's in a pot which should be way too sunny for it, but it's happy as Larry!

    One of my favourite perennials. I have Obsidian, Chocolate Ruffles, Marmalade, Lime Marmalade, Brass Lantern, Black Pearl and Midnight Rose in my garden. My favourite is Midnight Rose with dark foliage speckled with pink tinge

    I agree Midnight Rose is stunning.

    Thanks to everyone for your replies :), I will certainly be doing some research following your recommendations. Apologies for missing other Heuchara thread. :|

    I live them all but so do the vine weevils that came with one pot and now having trouble getting control of them so no heucheras at the moment.

    Most of mine are cuttings/divisions from other people's plants, but I bought Solar Eclipse a year or two ago, and one called Marvellous Marble last year. It's just about to flower


    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I used to grow Obsidian, but I've given up because of vine weevil
