I purchased Gypsy Dancer from a local nursery in early July, and the plant was in full bloom. It's now almost October, and it is still flowering. I love this plant...can't wait to see it next year.

One of the Heucheras in the 'Dancer Series' from Terra Nova. We've only had this Heuchera for one year and although very similar to some of the other silver leaved Heucheras, we found that it blooms far longer than most - from mid-May to July!
