Heleniums - Helen's Flowers -  are one of the 'Backbone' plants of the late summer garden!  

The common name 'Sneezeweed' is complete misnomer!  Because they bloom at the same time as Ragweed, folks think they cause sneezing BUT the Butterfly will tell you 'tis not so.  Ragweed is wind pollinated and flies up your nose and down your throat.  Heleniums are insect pollinated, NOT wind pollinated and therein, good reader, lies the difference.

Helleborus nigerChristmas Rose, actually rarely blooms at Christmas!  The German name of Schneerose (snow rose) is perhaps more appropriate. This one is a bit more demanding about its home. It needs deep and consistently rich, slightly limey soil. The bloom generally pure white, though green eyed.  The flowers, however, may be pink in bud or on the backs of the petals or may develop pinkish tints as the flowers age; there are also forms which rapidly age to dark pink, almost red.  Since these are seed grown, your plant may be other than pure white, although it's unlikely.

Thanks, in particular to Terra Nova, there are an abundance of exciting new Heuchera Hybrids.  Where once we had only the classic 'Palace Purple,' now one can find at least of touch of almost every color in the rainbow.  Gold, burgundy, silver, near black and apricot to mention a few.   "Most hybrids are combinations of sanguinea, americana and micrantha with exact parentage confused and unclear. 

Tips on Growing Heucheras:   1. Well-drained soil   2.  Divide them every couple of years and 'bring them back to earth'.  Eventually they tend to have stems that are too long.  If that happens, just break them apart and plant them farther down in the soil.  3. Most will take full sun in cooler, northern zones with adequate moisture. 

in north if moist, otherwise   H. villosa (Southwest Native) in the parentage also means more sun tolerance.

Heat and Humidity:  If you live in the deep South, be sure and look for Heucheras that have Heuchera villosa in their gene pool.  They are much more tolerant of Heat and Humidity.

Bloom Time:  If you want to extend the bloom season, H. americana, H. micrantha, H. sanguinea hybrids/cultivars bloom early (late spring, early summer)  H. villosa hybrids bloom later, in midsummer.

Heuchera 'Glitter' PP25019      Coral Bells     Zone:  4-9       

Heuchera 'Glitter' PP25019      Coral BellsTerra Nova says you can spot Heuchera 'Glitter' "a mile away".  Well that might be a slight exaggeration (or could be that at 67, I can't see anything a mile away so that might explain my doubt.)   But there isn't another Heuchera like it  with Mirror-bright silver foliage with a soft violet leaf back and contrasting BLACK veins that sparkle but it also has an extraordinarily neat growth habit.  Well that would be enough, but to 'top it off', Glitter has terrific 'bouquet-type' flowers of exotic fuchsia-pink.  This is Hollywood Glam at it best!  Takes any light AND it will strut its stuff in the DEEP SOUTH!
