I maintain the the heuchera are a better choice for your garden than most perennials and even annuals. They come in so many colors (reds, golds, yellows, chartreuse, green, purple – dappled, veined, variegated), textures (smooth, fuzzy, shiny) and sizes – and keep their color throughout the year – even under the snow. Rather than spending beaucoup bucks on seasonal coleus for color, heuchera are a much better value.
|The copper fountain still works! I have to bring it in each year - it's not sturdy enough to handle the snow.|
|The green in the lower portion of the photo is a channel of violets which looked spectacular about two weeks ago.|
|I've been trying to ditch those cheap plastic Adirondack chairs, but I've not found an alternate I like yet. |
Maybe this will be the year.
