Thanks Shelley. Just a small area of my back border. The marigolds have really spread. I have an even larger Palace purple in the same garden. They grow so quickly 😁 @ShelleySnyder

Are the flowers on the palace purple white or a soft pink?

My pleasure! 💘😍

They are kind of both. The stems are dark pink and the flowers are pink at first then dry to a white colour if that makes sense. They are so tiny I should wear my glasses when I look at them 😆 @gjones

Here's the palace purple you were referring to! I love the color! Those leaves do appear different and hardier, if you will

Unrelated, but … does @hkyfvr stand for “hockey fever”? (Something that Minnesotans have in common with Canadians 😉)

Yes it does. My daughter is all about hockey and this is her licence plate. My husband used it when he helped set up this app. 😊 @mn-5a

Most of mine are in the getting ready to or flowering right now, but I'm a bit farther along in summer than you.

A few weeks ago nothing much was happening then everything came at once. Makes a shorter season but lovely while it lasts. 😍😍 @lesliecole49

This heuchera is my best performer. My other ones seem to get eaten. I had a wild berry and a peach one and they shrivelled up and died on me. 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ @sunlovin

I think the Vilosa variety is very strong. I’ve divided mine several times. @hkyfvr 🌞

I've this one never really liked the colour until I moved it out of the sun the foliage turned black. I took some cuttings late in fall and left them to it over the winter and now they have new growth I'll plant them in the garden end of the month. Out of one plant I've now got 7 😁

Sounds great. I have another larger palace purple too. They get morning and early afternoon sun so their colour is pretty nice. I noticed that Katy had some growing from your seeds. 👍😍 @alan1111

Once you like the colour that's all that matters. Yeah Katy's are doing well for her. I was looking forward to growing huchura form seed for the first time but I can't find the seeds 😩 I'll collect seeds and try again next year

@hkyfvr the up and down, unpredictable weather is beyond annoying now. We are having the same here but not as cold as you 🥶 roll on warmer days so everything can catch up ☀️🙏🏻

Today I was so frustrated with the cold. High of 7 degrees with a cold wind. Had my Winter coat and felt like I needed gloves. The house was so cold as well. Tomorrow we double to 14 degrees and 20 by the weekend. Will be wonderful. My lilacs will finally open. The cold has prevented them from opening. Hope your weather improves too 👍🌸💗 @kez001uk
