Where do you go? I'm tired of searching and hoping to find the varieties I want around town. Seems like the ones I've looked at in the Garden Watchdog are wholesale only?

It seems like there used to be regular group buys here on DG where a bunch of people would get together to make a big order from the wholesalers but I can't find where those are posted. I only see swaps.

Specifically I want Georgia Peach, Autumn Leaves and Silver Scrolls.

Have you ordered from mamajack co-op? She has a sale of heuchera going for spring. Also, In the country gardens and gifts, Hosta Direct and I love hostas are good online sources. I'm winding things up for the winter but always have divisions of heuchera in the spring. You could send me a D-mail early in the year see what I have then. Never know it's just what is doing well that year. Autumn Leaves is not a big encreaser for me so I know that wouldn't be one.

Thanks Spring. Down here in TX, now is about the best time to start perennials (just got out of the heat of the summer and a "hard" freeze here is like 29F and usually doesn't happen until February) so I'd kinda like to get some in the ground to be established by Spring. I've got a new little part sun area to play with by the deck, too.

I'll try one of the vendors you suggested & also check out Mamajack's co-op. But you may be hearing from me in the Spring anyway. :-)

You may want to find some that have Villosa as parents. There was a good thread on mamajack about which heuchera grow in TX. Some do better in cooler areas like here in WA. That thread was some time late spring/summer.

Our garden centers have the best choices for Heucheras in the spring. If I were to purchase on line, I would want to make sure they are established plants and not plugs.
