Heuchera & Heucherella pictures

I took these pictures at work as well (It's May, it's busy, I'm at work 9+ hours a day/6 days a week and I still haven't replaced my monitor... so don't expect much else for a while!).

These were some really nice Heuchera & Heucherella I've seen this year.

I took the first of these pictures of Heuchera 'Plum Royal' on the growers tour I took late in April, the second at work.

I love this (fairly) new Heuchera. It really stands out on a bench of the usual blacks and browns and lime greens as being one of the few truly purple Coral Bells. The leaves are also lightly frosted with silver, large and glossy. My pictures do not do this plant justice.


Heucherella 'Golden Zebra'


'Golden Zebra' does not look very much like the promotional pictures would lead you to expect. The "red" in the leaf is a lot more subdued, especially side by side with one like 'Stoplight.' Maybe this is a result of growing conditions?
