21/06/19 - no idea what Heuchera this is, I brought it with me ten years ago from my old garden. Lost the label a long time ago. Always has quite some amazing vein markings, but does change a lot throughout the year - if anyone has any suggestions to what cultivar it could be, would be happy to hear 😊👍🏼 #heuchera #plantid #foliagefriday
Oh thank you ladies 😊🙏🏼, you look correct Sue, and thanks for validiting Urszula. God knows how I got it as I don’t ever remember buying one called that but I’ve been stumped for years as to what it might be. It’s the closest match so far 👍🏼 @lilybee @ublaszko
@MelanieAt oh I love your description of what the Heuchara does in winter. It does indeed thrust itself out of the ground and you're left with a longish type stem which is contorted in shape. This for me signals splitting the plant into an abundance of new life. Of one plant I was able to get 6 new plants. I marvel at how a plant regenerates and saves itself from pending doom. Sending out a message to save it. Heucharas are wonders of the garden like many plants. Love them. 😊👍🏼🙏🏼
Ok, I'm pretty convinced now that this unidentifiable plant I found is a Heuchera 🤓. Any experts out there know what variety it might be? Haven't seen it flower yet, but the leaves look a bit like palace purple. They have a green edge round each leaf. @robbiec any ideas?
Hi @robbiec , thanks for that - checked out on Google, and not sure it's mine. I've never bought one that looks like that before, but then I don't ever remember buying a purple one either. Is it feasible the leaves are changing colour with the change of season? It was previously green. I finally found two labels in the shed - one was for Heuchera sanguinea leuchtkafer and the other was Heuchera bressingham hybrids. 🤔
@richard.spicer.7906 both the ones you mentioned are green cultivars and if memory serves, not very evergreen. Heuchera's tones and shades do change through the year. If you are on Twitter Plantagogo are really nice people who breed and grow heuchera Heucherella and tiarella. They will know it I feel sure. Just another thought, heuchera are prone to the odd chimera, so you may just have something a little unusual.
