I bought this plant last year, along with many other heucheras. This one was dead by August, while the rest were good. I returned it to the nursery for a new one, and that one did not come back this year.

Positive gweigel On Jan 7, 2011, gweigel from Mechanicsburg, PA wrote:

This plant has beautiful foliage throughout the season -- gold to golden-green with burgundy cross-shaped markings. More colorful and a bit larger than 'Stoplight.' Not much flowering but the foliage is by far the main attraction. One problem: voles like it. Roots of 'Alabama Sunrise' were eaten entirely out from underneath over winter. 'Stoplight' is still intact nearby.
