Here at Vermont Flower Farm we have grown heucheras since the English introduction of Palace Purple. Before that we enjoyed the spring arrival of Tiarella cordifolia, Foamflower, which has been used in some of the heuchera hybridizing.

Heims is the master of these fine plants. The book has already become a well used resource here. The pictures could be a little more clear but as a resource, it can't be beat.

To see many of the latest heucheras, go to Terra Nova Nurseries at http://terranovanurseries.com. You'll find 'Midnight Rose' and 'Cafe Ole' as well as 'Marmalade', 'Lime Rickey', 'Peach Flambe', 'Stoplight' and many others.Finding them all is a challenge but like the book, once you have a new one, you won't want to let it go.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0881927023, Hardcover)

Few perennials have undergone as dramatic a "makeover" as heucheras (coral bells) and their hybrids with tiarellas (foamflowers), the heucherellas (foamy bells). Drawn mainly from diminutive forest-dwelling species with small white flowers and unremarkable foliage, these woodlanders and crevice dwellers are now among the most popular plants in nurseries around the world. Dan Heims and Grahame Ware not only provide background on the wild species of Heuchera, they also tell how these plants were developed into the garden stars they are today, with an appreciative nod to the breeders who revolutionized the plants' characteristics. The book's main feature is extensive listings of the choice selections and hybrids available commercially; practical chapters on garden care, propagation, and design uses round out this fascinating account. Gardeners looking for the drab and colorless need not trouble themselves with this book — the first ever on these striking plants.
