My Heucheras


By Scotkat


I have admired heucheras from a far for many years and had one planted in my gravel bed for 5yrs but lost it to our long cold winter .

But my little delights in pots just love it .

You can see my photo of marmalade it has been stunning a real coat of many colours.

I will add photos later of all my heucheras.

I would like to grow them in hanging baskets.

Has anyone grown or grow them in hanging baskets.

I think I am starting to get addicted to Pam unfortunaltely I bought lovely new ceramic pots to repot 2 of my heucheras and tipped out old compost along with the name tags.

I do know one was Americana but forget the other.

I am involved with kids garden club maybe I should intruduce them to heucheras:)

Lovely photos, Scotkat! I see some of these everyday when I pass a Community Centre with my wife on the way to her place of work. There is a very dark one, almost black as well as this Marmalade. I've admired them all for several years now.

The transformation in your Marmalade is something amazing! :-))

Thankyou Balcony I have so enjoyed watching how the colours change .

10 May, 2011


Such a beautiful plant marmalade, loved the way you filmed it through the year.....there are so many exciting ones on the market now, I remember buying Palace Purple about 20 years ago, that was the only variety at that time, and now look at the choices we have....too many!! lol

I've given mine a trim and put the pots in the GH (-12 last year) but have my eye on marmalade and creme brulee for next year. I'm hoping to split them in the spring and combine the colours in big pots.....

22 Oct, 2011


Pam Oh dear -12 that is cold, OH has split some already, took a risk as the weather here has been so warm, they look great in pots we put 4 in our big urn last year, stayed out all winter too.
