I'm trying to identify my plants that made it through the winter and my new puppy running off with the tags. Please let me know if you think I've identified them incorrectly. I would appreciate your help.

You have 'Stoplight and 'Autumn Leaves' correct.
'Stormy Seas', I thought was a bit gray. It might be just the spring growth and will turn darker later.
'Guardian Angel', 'Cherries Jubilee', 'Raspberry Regal' I have not seen only pictures so will leave that out to the others.
However my book says: 'Cherries Jubilee' should have light red blooms and warm brown foliage. 'Raspberry Regal' will have greeny red blooms on 12 inch stems.
No info on 'Guardian Angel'

The overwintered in my Zone 3 are currently a lighter color and the one I purchased from a Ghouse is way further ahead and is darker. Tomorrow I will put them beside each other so you can see the difference. I have Plum Royal too so I will post both for you.

You have so many but, here is my two cents.
1) Georgia Peach is Southrn Comfort. 99.9% sure
2)Amethyst Mist, Berry Smoothie, Carmel,Citronella,Pinot Gris, Silver Scrolls look right to me
3) Marmalade is wrong Looks more like Sweet Tea. Do you have that one?

Agreed. The one you've labeled is Heucherella Sweet Tea. They are all beautiful, but I am also a loser at IDing. Mystic angel and venus look the same to me. All the dark ones look the same to me. I have 3 caramel, and I'd swear they do not look the same. I try to keep the labels with them, but otherwise I am a lost cause to ID. That puppy is gonna get it but good.

Dlefferts,

Wow! You have the most amazing collection of Heucheras! I've recently become addicted myself. I'm sorry you had such a horrible winter with them - we're not far from eachother (I'm in So.NH) and alot of people up here have had alot of vole problems over the winter, could that be part of it for you too?

Anyhow, Your Citronella, Carmel, Purple Petticoats & Miracle all look right to me. My Encore is alot more yellow than rosy like your photo shows. I was pretty sure that's what mine was but I did by them at Walmart, so I suppose they could have been mislabled. I did look on DG to confirm it last fall though, and it did look right. So either yours is something else or mine is :-)

I must know - how long have you been collecting, and where did you get all those varieties?? I love them!

JenDion, I've been collecting Heuchera, Heucherellas & Tiarella for about 10 years. I love the different leaves and colors. I get them from mail orders companies, garden centers, nurseries, Dave's Garden and ebay (I don't suggest ebay they usually are always plugs). I tour all the local places and when they have a new one I get it. I'm addicted to both heurchera & friends and lilies. I have to let you know that I've lost alot through the years at least 35 different types. I've also purchased them at big chain stores so once again they could be mislabeled. I like the help to identify them on this forum, as earlier stated sometimes they start to look alike. I'm always learning!!!

Photo is on the camera and your new one looks much more like the one from the nursery but I will post tonight when I get home.
I do agree witht the Sweet Tea as I just purchased one. I must add that the leaves are very large too.

Here are the two side by side.
The bigger plant is from a G house and the tiny one is the Licorice that overwintered in my zone 3 garden. It's the third year for it and it will get big just a bit slow this year. I was very pleased that it has survived at all.
Two of my orangy ones didn't.

You can say that again! They truly vary so much, that plants I was convinced I had identified, I'm now questioning. Crazy. I'm making up my metal garden tags now before anything happens to the tags on my new ones. (Not that it guarantees it was labelled correctly in the first place :-)

You have always had such a gorgeous collection. I like what you are doing - I may follow suit. I know I have lost some and I know I have some that I cannot tell what they are. I also have some that I purchased with no idea what they were...

There are some good identifiers on this thread... I am hoping you can all help me as well... Perhaps I can get some pictures this weekend.

Carolyn

This one is T. Pink Skyrocket.

springcolor, Thanks for the pictures , they certainly helped with Paris & Southern Comfort. I already lost the other two Marmalade & Mocha Mint. My Velvet Night seems to change color right now it looks darker then yours in the picture. (once again maybe it is not Velet Night).

Carolyn22 - Pink Skyrocket is beautiful & any help we can give to you to identify your plants is yours.

Meanwhile, about the Tornado
We are all fine. We lost electricity for about 24 hours. No damage to our house & yard. The tornado was about mile away. It certainly brought Agawam & Springfield to a holding pattern. It is certainly nothing we would expect around here. All family is fine.

so glad everyone is fine. Tornadoes are scary - we had them on 5/27 and we were without power for almost 24 hours. I was more worried about my fish in my pond than I was a freezer full of meat!

dleffIerts - I, too, am glad that Rosie did her puppy thing so that I could enjoy seeing your collection. I am new on this forum, but I have the bug and am enjoying building on my own collection of heucheras and friends at our farm in NH. I might suggest one thing that I do every year. I have to remove all of my plant labels so that they won't be raked up in the fall & spring raking, so I make a diagram or map of each garden...not a big deal, just a pencil drawing of what cultivars of plants are where in the particular gardens. That helps a lot, especially with my daylilies, in the spring. I have just done it with my Heuchera garden.

I agree with you and others who said that the color seems to change according to location and amount of sun, etc.. I have one that was labeled Autumn Leaves at a very good Garden Center in Vermont, but it is green and I'm sure it cannot be Autumn Leaves after seeing yours. I like the shade of green, but I will have to research that one.

Thanks again for sharing your photos!

Another thing that helps is to the journaling system here on DG. You can make your journals and blogs are simple or as complex as you would like.

What I really like is that I am able to add pictures to help identify my plants.

Thank you for that suggestion, Carolyn. I don't find the journal to be very user friendly and I often have internet connection problems in our location in NH, so I keep notes I can access even without the internet, but I will spend some time trying to figure out the journal here.

I have found your thread helpful in confirming IDs.

It's also nice when you can view other people's journals. I'm a geek and love being able to tweak mine during lunch at work or at night after I've come in from the garden.

Carolyn, nope, yours isn't an option from your member page. I see you a link to your diary and then tradelists. I think journal should be between those. Are you sure you have it available to others?

Wow, I was looking for pics of different colors and I found the right thread! Beautiful collections.

I only have Plum Pudding, Green Spice, Brownies, and Carmel.

I agree, I am a big collector of daylilies plus hosta and iris. I need to add a few more things lol.

Thanks you guys. Starting to try & figure out what is left this year. Some seem to love my garden other heucheras & friends seem to hate it. I'm sorry to say some of the more beautiful ones seem to hate it.
