Synopsis

Few perennials have undergone as dramatic a makeover as heucheras (coral bells) and their hybrids with tiarellas (foamflowers), the heucherellas (foamy bells). Thought of as 'a marginalized group of grandmother plants' less than 20 years ago, these plants are now among the most popular in nurseries around the world. The book's primary feature is its extensive listings of the choice selections and hybrids available commercially. Practical chapters on garden care, propagation, and design uses round out this fascinating account. Gardeners looking for the drab and colourless need not trouble themselves with this book. Those who want to take a magical mystery tour into a world of silver, garnet, purple, black, and ruby-red, however, are invited along for the ride of their lives.

Heuchera und Heucherellas scheinen sich leicht züchten zu lassen. Das Ergebnis: eine kaum noch zu fassende Anzahl von Sorten mit bunten oder geflecktem Laub in fast allen Schattierungen. Dennoch bietet dieses Buch (wenn auch "schon" von 2005 und seitdem gibt es viel Neues) einen sehr guten Überblick. Die Beschreibungen sind recht detailliert und aufschlussreich. Man kann sich gut informieren und es gibt auch Verwendungshinweise. Selbst Züchter und Jahr sind mit angegeben. Wer Freude an dieser Pflanzen, Farbe im Garten durch Laub mag, ist mit diesem Buch gut bedient. Preis und Leistung passen gut zusammen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful resource for any gardener 26. April 2015
Von IMHO - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very helpful book for those interested in growing Heuchera and Heucherella. At the time it was published it would have been a 5-Star selection, but the horticultural world of these is changing so fast that it is not as up-to-date now. Nonetheless, it is a great education on the horticultural history of these plants, and pays tribute to those who have led the way of bringing them into widespread appreciation and those who have created new and welcome cultivars and hybrids that improve the appeal to the gardening public as well as collectors. Certainly a great book to have handy in planning new gardens and beds.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superior Garden Book 4. November 2007
Von E. Benjamin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Dan Heims and Grahame Ware's Heucheras and Heucherellas is a superior gardening book for sophisticated and professional gardeners alike. Why? Because in this 208 page book everything you want to know about these two genera are described in great detail. The book grabs you right off by showing over 55 pages of superior colored photographs in alphabetical order. How clever. Usually colored photographs are in the middle of a book. But not here. With the result that you want to dash out to your nearest nursery and find all of the plants depicted. This is followed by a series of chapters on Heucheras in the wild and the citations found in old publications, a list of all the species and their descriptions, how to hybridize this intriguing genus and very practical advise on how to use the new cultivars in the landscape. What is not to like about this book. Try finding a comprehensive list of all species and cvs on the Web. Good luck. This book has it all. It appeals to the professional horticulturist and the avid amateur, who often is as informed as the professional. For those gardeners who are beginners, I say read this book and enrich yourself with horticultural knowlegde. Soon botanic names, mentionings of hybrids, tetraploids, and other botanical lingo will seem as familiar to you as how to make a bechamel sauce recipe in a cookbook. My one criticism would be the chapter on the discovery of the genera. The language seemed very stiff in contrast with the informal tone of the rest of the book. It was almost like foot notes of someone's thesis. So take the time to Google some of the plant hunters mentioned and you will be very much intrigued by the incredible hardships many of them endured. A small criticism as the book does not deal with that subject matter. Since the publication of this book new cvs have been introduced to the trade. But that should not stop you from treasuring this book. It has all the fundamentals in place and the name of another cv you can always add to the index in the back of the book. So 5 stars it is.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gorgeous photos and interesting, useful text 5. Februar 2006
Von Gen of North Coast Gardening - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I am a professional landscape designer, and I have become a huge fan of Heucheras and Heucherellas. Their incredible variety of foliage colors makes them a wonderful plant to use in many situations. They are simple to maintain, easy to grow, and come in foliage colors from bright golden chartreuse with magenta midribs, lush greens with gorgeous natural-looking pink flowers, to deep velvety purples and rich chocolate ruffles.

This is a truly wonderful resource for fans of these plants. The first part of the book has over 50 pages filled with multiple color photos on each page, of every kind of Heuchera or Heucherella you might want to know about. This is great for getting a glimpse of some of the newer varieties that haven't reached our local nurseries yet, and for comparing the subtle and not so subtle variations in their foliage, flower, and habit. I haven't found any Heucheras that are available to me that are not covered in this book, and he covers a lot that I haven't seen yet.

The text which comes after the truly awe-inspiring array of photos in the beginning is helpful and interesting. He gives a lot of background information that the average home gardener might skip over (history, propagation, how they are named and botanically classed), but that I personally found fascinating.

He also gets right to the meat of the matter in his discussions of pest problems and how to solve them, how to combine some of the outrageous foliage colors found in Heucheras and Heucherellas with other garden plants, and how to design with them and use them successfully in the garden.

There is also a reference portion where he discusses each plant and variety, its parentage and what that tells us about what they like in the garden, and describes many varieties in great and useful detail.

I have been waiting for a book on Heucheras for a really long time, and I am so glad that this one was so well worth the wait.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Informative but Dated 26. März 2013
Von Al H. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The information is very informative, the color plates are quality, but the information (at no fault of the authors) is dated (2005). New Heucheras are developed every year and there is no way you can publish a book and include the latest and greatest. If you purchase for 'base knowledge' fine, very good book. if you are looking for the latest and greatest, not so fine. Overall, a very good reference book if you are using Heuchera in your garden. In general, that is why I purchased it, and the way it will be used.

Dan Heims is a personable fellow and excellent author of this book on Heuchera and Heucherella that his company Terra Nova has done so much to distribute to gardens across the land.
