Gardeners' Notes:

Positive tctq On Feb 1, 2008, tctq from Indiana, PA wrote:

My two Dolce Creme Brulee are in their fourth year, growing in PA zone 5. I planted them in a container (bought them in 3" pots) their first year, then transplanted them to a part of my border that gets about 5 hours of morning sun. They stay a relatively bright peachy tan all winter and are the showiest of my "warm shade" heucheras including Amber Waves and Peach Melba. The foliage is about 12" high. The cream-blush blossoms are thinly spaced on the stalk, but I treasure this heuchera for its foliage.
