I didn't plan for them to hug each other and our Crimson King Maple tree the way they do .. but they do a wonderful job don't they ? There is the slightest pink tinge showing as well "girlie time"
Sorry .. I couldn't help myself .. just a connecting thread from my last post with "Stairway to Heaven" ?
Again with the heuchera .. "Marmalade" this time .. makes me want some toast .. I'll press on though. This has been another work horse foliage plant for me .. I have divided it a few times .. I have been a very bad plant mom at times when it has HEAVED .. ignoring the problem does not make it go away apparently ? .. over all it is a delicious heuchera and I highly recommend it !
Now for something completely different (Monty Python flashback, sorry) ... a heucherella named "Stoplight" .. this magic plant is made from a friendly get together between a heuchera and a tiarella to create a new and beautiful plant to stand on its own feet from its parents .. there is a similar one called "Sunspot" .. but Stoplight was the one for me .. and it has been doing so well why tamper with perfection ?
Now how is that for contrast, people ??!! .. but see the similarities in leaf shape ? interesting right ? .. what a clash of colours ; -)
Gypsy Dancer was a total surprise to me of how I absolutely LOVE it .. it was a smallish plant, pretty .. but didn't really press my button until the second year when it made my jaw drop .. I love the marbling and have some similar heuchera in slightly different colour shades.
How gorgeous is that with the Gold Barberry ?
Then the flirty Colour Flash Astilbe .. had to make sure everyone got another look at that beauty!
