Last year I planted Heuchera 'Snow Angel' because I thought I had gone overboard with the dark colored varieties. I thought a little leaf variegation never hurt a garden so I bought two of these at the Home Depot garden center when they went on sale. Only one survived the Chicago winter and I'm not sure if it's because of an incident with a dog or because I didn't plant it deep enough and it died because of frost heaving.
It's still a small plant and it probably won't be until it's third year of growing in my urban garden that I'll see it grow to it's full height of 12'' but in the meantime I am enjoying the display of flowers it has put on thus far. It's been blooming for the better part of the month and has attracted a lot of insects have been attracted to the flowers, some flies I've never seen before but also a number of bumble bees. I wasn't expecting much in the way of blooms but I have been impressed with the amount of blooms and how long they have lasted.
Right now I have my eye on Heuchera 'Lime Ricky' at the garden center but there's something about the color and the thin leaves that make them look less robust than the others being offered for sale. I'd hate to buy it and have it not survive the winter.
