I can’t possibly do as thorough a job depicting or cataloging heucheras as does Terra Nova Nursery. Here, you’ll see a brief list of some of my favorite cultivars, but new ones come out every year, and older ones that maybe don’t sell so well, or are proven not to be as hardy as was desired fall off the lists. So there is no corresponding slideshow that goes with this text plant list. Please refer to Terra Nova Heucheras and see the plants there. They have complete horticulture info on each cultivar. Why should I retype it all, when it’s already documented over there. Go check it out!
While at the Terra Nova site, don’t miss the Heuchera cousins, Heucherella and Tiarella, both with generally more deeply cut foliage, and for deeper shade conditions.
Terra Nova is a wholesaler, so you won’t be able to buy. But at least you’ll find something you like. Then your task will be finding it either locally, or online at a retail nursery. There are 2 very good plant procurement (they find plants for you) companies in the Portland/Vancouver area, and they will work with mere mortals. :-) They are:
- All Season Plants — in Vancouver, WA — delivers to Portland metro area — is a retailer of Terra Nova Plants
- R & M Plant Procurement — In Silverton, OR — delivers to Vancouver area
