Heuchera Marmalade


Heuchera Marmalade

150526 - bought at a Welsh GC - went to 2 that day, so can't remember which one I got it from. Heroic restraing to visit 2 GCs and only buy one plant!

Well done on your restraint, at least what you did buy was worthy :)

Smashing plant Fran. Hope it survives OK.

thanks Waddy and Dorjac. I've not been outside much for the past couple of weeks, so it's not been getting any tlc. I really should start repotting the plants, a lot of htem look like they could do with it.

I've got several dark-leaved Heucheras, and when I saw this one I just grabbed it.

Great choice Fran. This is one of my best performing Heucheras. It also looks great all winter. :)

thanks, Cottage Karen, that's very reassuring, it might survive me after all!

wish it still looked like this! been battened down and under cover for a couple of months, and likely to be a couple more before I feel safe in bringing it out again.

Fran...have you checked it for weevil grubs.? Mine are looking not bad...

No, it's in the mini greenhouse with the other Heucheras and a stack of other plants that I felt were too small or too delicate to winter outside. it's a bit crowded in there ...

hmm...marmalade is the best over-wintering heuchera in my climate. Hope it picks up for you. Tbh, in the photo it looks a bit too orange to me...i'm wondering if its been mis-labelled. But its difficult to tell, as they colour up differently according to your weather conditions. My Marmalade has a hint of green all year.

sadly, my plants have been under cover, as much as I could manage, for the past few months. I'm still not sure that the worst of winter is actually over, so I'm reluctant to get them out, just in case.
