Bought this tiny heuchera in 1997 at a plant sale at the Center for Urban Horticulture in Seattle. Kept in its original pot it languished. Repotted in garden soil in 2000 & it began to slowly grow. Now (2012) its leaves are lush & has far more blossoms. Learned it is a rare species from Sandia Mountains in New Mexico. What a find!
