Another "ringer"

Yet again with another "ringer" ... Creme Brulee or Marmalade .. How on earth could I have let this sneak under the wire again .. please tell me there are other gardeners that have slipped up with the identification clause in our contract to try and KNOW what we are planting ? LOL

I don't know for sure which heuchera this is, but it sure looks like the Creme Brulee I just bought. How could I pass up a plant with a name like that?!
Your hellebores look different than all the others I've seen this season; I really like yours.

Thanks for the update on the "girls" yesterday. Sophie must be very patient to put up with Emma.

Rose .. you are right about the name .. how could a self respecting desert queen pass that up ? .. My hellebore really put on a show this year !
I think Sophie knows what is coming up at the end of July .. the spay op .. so she is just going to hang in till then when she thinks Emma will slow down ? haha

I was drooling over this very plant at a nursery today, and forced myself to leave it behind (sob!) and buy groceries instead. I wish I could remember the name.

AMY !!! I had to laugh .. we do try to make sure some groceries are in the house before we are taken over by the "must have THAT gorgeous plant" beast inside us gardeners ? LOL
You did the right thing girl .. for the time being .. maybe later on you can sneak it in your garden ?

Looks like my 'Creme Brulee', too, Joy. Unless you hear otherwise, I think you'd be safe to go with that, unless, of course, you want to invent your own name: 'Marmalade Creme Brulee'?!!

'ben" .. I love the thought of making it my own name (with help from you of course : ) .. hum .. sounds perfect to me .. Marmalade Creme Brulee it is !
