Gardeners' Notes:


On Jul 29, 2007, carrielamont from Milton, MA (Zone 6a) wrote:

I would describe the flowers as buff or apricot, but I really like THEM. Everything else is true, too, but whereas I've heard of people snipping the "boring" flowers off other cultivars, these flowers really add structure and framework to that part of my garden. They don't fall over, they don't crowd the flowers next to them, they just last and last and last. And they go with everything. They're a little pale yellow around daffodils, pinker around tulips, and the strawberry foxgloves have got then looking a little apricot. They look nice next to lisianthus and in front of coneflowers. I imagine they'll be great with the fall sedums as well.

Very intersting color. Mine had excellent foliage color all through the winter. Good year-round interest.

This plant grows beautifully in zone 4a and looks great when planted with some dusty miller-brings out the silver. This is one of the real "no maintenance" plants! I have it growing in light shade and it just looks beautiful year after year no matter what the weather.

In almost full sun it hasn't burnt a leaf yet. The silver goes well with dark ajugas, as an added bonus.

Great variety of Heuchera. Not as easy as Palace Purple, but, still easy though. Has charming pink flowers through out the summer.

'Silver Scrolls' (PP#12,066) has highly contrasting burgundy and silver foliage and good-sized (for a Heuchera) white flowers. The foliage is very durable and looks good through the winter.


On Jan 28, 2003, Baa wrote:

A hybrid cultivar perennial, subject to a plant patent in some countries.

Has evergreen, scalloped, purple overlaid with silver leaves with conspicuous veining. Bears tiny white flowers. In winter the purple is more conspicuous but the silver returns in the spring.

Flowers May - July

Loves a moist, well-drained, rich soil in partial or light shade. May need dividing every few years to keep 'fresh'.

Will not come true from seed.
