Re: Heuchera Division


Tony,
Thanks - you hit the right nerve here.  The Coral Bell Heucheras I used to
have were surrounded by Lamium and didn't do so well.  An unencumbered Alum
Root Heuchera I have is doing well.  I just thought it was a difference in
the species, but perhaps it was the groundcover.  I  have one called Crown
Jewels that does well every year but never gets any bigger than it was
originally.  This year I bought several new varieties including Amber Waves,
and I wanted to stay up on the best way to care for them.  Thanks so much.

Kitty
