Episode 4: Cabbage Patchcomments (0) January 31st, 2012 in blogs
Ever notice how an obscure plant today can turn into a treasure trove of exciting new varieties overnight? Take the genus Heuchera, for example: it wasn't too many years ago its few species labored pretty much in garden obscurity. Today, you'd be hard pressed to walk into a nursery without tripping over 10 new Heuchera cultivars. There are so many Heucheras, in fact, that we decided to start this show off with a Heuchera slam. Listen in to find out what we mean.
Where do new plants come from? In this month's episode, I talk to Dan Heims, president of Terra Nova Nurseries, and arguably one of the harbingers of Heuchera as a household name.
- the new plant Heims is most excited about this year;
- the coolest plant he just couldn't propagate;
- the hard-to-propagate genus he feels deserves more attention, and;
- his favorite Heuchera AND Heucherella... Well, on that particular day, at least.
