We are two good friends and avid gardeners. Summer of 2020 was the most difficult time due to the Coronavirus pandemic restrictions. Unable to meet friends or family or travel, we turned to gardening to keep the mind sane and body healthy. A life long love of plants turned to something more – a passion. We also stumbled across the enormous varieties of Heuchera and their cousins the Heucherella. These lovely plants, with their breath taking foliage, won our hearts.
Living in the NewEngland area for over 20+ years where winters are harsh, we found that these cuties could easily withstand the harsh cold, and continue to dazzle with their colorful foliage, even when the weather outside was dreary. They required minimal care through all the seasons, survived extreme cold in winter, heat & humidity in summer. They withstood minimal watering too. So what’s not to like about them! These are plants that are native to North America and have adapted themselves over centuries.
We decided to launch this site as a homage to these unsung beauties, which showed us what true resilience is during these testing times. We wanted to spread our love for them with others. Hope you too come to appreciate them.
With time we plan to expand to other such unsung varieties like our favorite Heucheras.
