    Bought these two heuchera today, the chocolate coloured one is labeled as 'Carnival fall festival' and the other as 'carnival Electra'.

    Looking on the internet, it doesnt look like Carnival Fall Festival? Is this right? Thanks!IMG_20181016_123343.jpgIMG_20181016_123357.jpgIMG_20181016_124004.jpg

    I am not sure about the purple/chocolate one but the one on the right looks like Ginger Ale.

      Hi,

      Think it may well be Electra as its quiet heavily veined, though the intensity of colour can change dramatically depending on its stored location, sun or shade, plus they are loosing their colour to some degree at this time of year.

      Also have to factor in the dreaded label swapper !

      Well worth checking and /or treating for vine weevil eggs / grubs as they are one of those little devils favourite plants, though the foliage does not show typical signs of the adult having chewed them.

        Thanks both for your repies! I think there was more than one which said fall festival but it looks nothing like the photographs online. I think the other probably is Electra and just the other one is confused?

        It's so hard to tell as they change throughout the year! I love heuchera, I got five, including these, for my birthday :D

        I have already taken off a few catapillars!! So I will treat for weevils :)

        This is one of my Ginger Ales, looks the same as yours, the leaves are lighter but it was taken in early summer.
