Tag Archives: Chelsea Flower Show 2014

Welcome to the weekend

The days are getting longer, light levels are rising and I can’t wait to get into the garden , can you ?
I have planning what to do in it for months (probably won’t get much time in it but I can dream)

Heuchera Heucherella & Tiarella at RHS Tatton flower show last year showing the range of colour, shape and size.

 

I look at the combinations used in our displays and ache for more time in the garden
You can create similar displays in your gardens very easily using heucheras
Luckily heucheras are fairy easy to grow and grow fast too
Making more time to sit and enjoy
They mix well with other plants. They are evergreen and very hardy

Heucheras at Southport Flower Show last August showing the contrasting colours and flowers.

 

The colours are like they are taken from a painters pallet

There is always something for every position in the garden too.

Have a great weekend and happy gardening 🙂

Glamorous Heuchera ‘Lipstick’

 

Heuchera Lipstick is the best red flowering Heuchera of the moment!

Heuchera 'Lipstick' the only true red!

Heuchera ‘Lipstick’ so glamorous!

Just as iconic stars of Hollywood wore bright red lipstick ….Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, and Marilyn Monroe, adding glamour to our screens. Heuchera ‘Lipstick’ adds some glamour to our gardens.

Heuchera ‘Lipstick in our 2014 Chelsea display

We used Heuchera ‘Lipstick’ to give our display some Hollywood glamour in our Gold medal winning 2014 Chelsea Flower Show display.

I think she managed it, with Heucherella ‘Brass Lantern’ (the coppery one in the center)

Our leading man Heucherella ‘Brass Lantern’, is flanked either side with the two leading ladies Heuchera ‘Lipstick’.

You all seemed to love it, making it our most popular Heuchera of our 2014 Chelsea display.

Look up Chelsea flower show 2015 maybe get some tickets …we will be there maybe we will have our Hollywood superstar Heuchera ‘Lipstick’ on display

Heuchera ‘Lipstick’ flowering for such long period.

Loving sun or part shade makes her a great garden plant.

She just keeps on giving week after week, month after month.

To keep her looking glamorous, dead when needed as this will make her flower for even longer!

It also to keep the whole plant looking tidy.

She has long slender black stems too making those red flowers pop even more, as they ascend from the low mounding silvery green foliage.

Heuchera 'Lipstick' the most amazing red flowers

Heuchera ‘Lipstick’ the most amazing red flowers on tall slender black stems.

She can go in the border or in pots mixes well with Heuchera and Heucherella as well as other perennials, even annuals. You can plant a single plant or put 3 or more together for impact.

In the border you could make a swath running through like a river to connect other parts of the garden together.

There are lots of uses for such a glamorous lady. Have fun and enjoy!

Fabulous Darling!

Hahaha… Well if you can’t have a bit of fun…

Maybe see you all at Chelsea 2015 where we might have some new rising stars to maybe pick up an Oscar of their own ??
