Hi, I am looking for the name a the heuchera that is 'native' to the woodlands in the Ohio Valley region. (Not the hybrids)

I would like to plant it for our hummingbirds in our woodland garden.

Does anyone know the variety and perhaps where I can buy the seed?

Thanks. t.

Thank you katie, for the links. It sounds like it might be a good choice for me.

I have the Pacific NW native Heuchera cylindra, which I think is absolutely lovely. I'm hoping it will seed itself all over the garden as the native Geum macrophyllum has.
