Southern Comfort & Sweet Tea

Southern Comfort & Sweet Tea are what we just planted on the pool deck. This is a shady area and these Hucheras are shade loving perennials. The two on the ends are the southern comfort and the middle one is sweet tea. I just love their names and love the pop of color they give this area.





      I snapped this one quick before he flew away!
               





Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you are having a wonderful 4th of July! Martina

Your Heuchera are so pretty Martina, They are one of the few plants that I can grow successfully on my shady lot. I have a darker color but I like the color of yours better. Your fence is great too.

Wow! These are stunning! I have never heard of them so I googled it and the images are beautiful! I'll have to research these and see if they'd survive an midwest winter! Thanks for posting your lovely pics!
