OHhhhh I have been trying for so long to get them to grow. I just planted two more last weekend and hoping for the best. I share your excitment!!!!

Heucheras have been hybridizing in my garden for the past few years, now ranging from clear green shiny, deep red. And one volunteer Japanese Painted Fern that surpasses anything I've seen in the trade.

I actually like the straight species better than "Jack Frost." The heart shape and light green color I find very appealing. The straight species self sows in my yard, so one plant will generate a decent number of seedlings every spring.

"Jack Frost" is at the local Lowes this year for the usual 5.98 a pot. (Last year I could only ever find it for $15 in the good nursery, myself...)

Could you have planted Brunnera Angel Wings, looks like mine. I also have Jack Frost and it looks nothing like this one.


And all I could see was the maple seedling to the right - how sad is that? Spring and I am in full weeding mode.

Michele- My Jack Frost has reseeded twice in as many years and both babies look like Mama! Couldn't believe my luck. They are right next to the plain green leaf ones as well.

The expensive reseeder: a sign of a happy garden.
UrsulaV...If you got it for $5.98 it's likely tissue culture or mass production, which might not be as vigorous (though it could be fine). I have a hard time with Brunnera in hot and summer-dry Atlanta, but my friend Lynne has them reseeding freely in her Atlanta garden, so I may have to try again.

I meant tissue culture FOR mass production...whoops!

I wonder if that is one my SIl has good luck with? I'll have to check.
