Some of my favorite garden plants of all time are the fabulous Heuchera hybrids from Terra Nova Nurseries. Foliage color is black in 'Obsidian', chartreuse in 'Lime Ricky', and Amber in 'Amber Waves' with many other colors and blends. Plants are evergreen in our climate, keeping their color all year. ...
