    Small pink bells surround top 6” of the wiry, erect stems in late spring-mid-summer.

    Size: 12-18” x 6-8”  
    Care: part shade in moist to moist well-drained soil

    I do not know which Heuchera this is. This  was growing here when I moved here around 1995.  We bought the property from spry 93 year old Anne Patterson, “for sale by owner.” I cannot imagine that she was buying new plants in her 90’s so I’m making an educated guess that it is at least 40 years old.  It does not set seed, not unusual for a hybrid.  But we like it so much that  we’ve divided it several times over the last couple of years to make enough to sell. Try as I might I cannot identify it but I’ve narrowed it down to a hybrid called brixoides, of which there are innumerable different selections.  I’ve named it ‘Caldwell” for the crossroads where our nursery is located, originally named for the 1st settlers, Joseph and Sara Caldwell c. 1860.
