Happy little heucheras Review by Michael

I ordered young plants (starter TC), and near the spring shipping date asked for a delay of more than a month while I was out of state. The young plants arrived healthy and eager to grow, and are easily recognizable by their bright and ruffled leaves. They are located atop a slight rise in shade under a first-story dogwood, a taller, spreading yew, and taller still red oak, in clay soil into which leaf compost, lime, and gypsum been added and worked repeatedly since the preceding fall. Red lava rocks were added at the bottom of each hole for drainage, with pine bark nuggets amended as mulch. After two months of 90-degree heat and Mid-Atlantic high humidity, they look happy as can be, encircling a clump of orange Southern Comfort heucheras. (Posted on August 15, 2016)

Great bright green ruffles! Review by Kathleen

I loved this plant the moment I saw it. The leaves are bright emerald green and ruffly. It has taken very well in the location I placed it, on a border between the moist/dry sections of my partially shaded garden. I have had no issues with it at all, and it has been in the 90s-100s here since I planted it. (That's not average weather for this area, it's usually cooler).
I love all my Heucheras, but this one is a favorite. (Posted on July 14, 2015)
