LOVE this plant. I bought 5 for container arrangements this past fall and they leaves are still hanging in there under the foot of snow we just got in my zone 6b. I plan to transfer them to the ground and I'm looking forward to seeing their white blooms in the spring. They changed color to a deep cinnamon in late fall but started out with an interesting (very visible) variegation and veining that ranged in color from lemon/lime to gingery amber and it's just too beautiful to describe. I love how it looks with Brunnera and little bunny fountain grass. My favorite heuchera!Kristin Hacker, Connecticut, United States, 1 year ago
