Along with most of the rest of the country, middle Tennessee has been deep in the throws of one of the coldest winters in many a year. We’ve seen days of temps down to 3 degrees at my house, with the following days never breaking the thirties.
I just took this photo a few days ago after weeks of sub-freezing weather. The day I took this photo it was in the lower forties – a heat wave for this January. This Proven Winners Dolce Blackberry Ice must have ice in it’s veins because it has not flenched in the cold. I planted it last April and watched it thrive in the heat of summer, but it’s winter performance has me singing it’s praises. This will be my new go-to Heuchera for winter containers!
This Heuchera grows up to 12 inches and spreads to 22 inches. Mine has thrived in it’s part sun, North-facing location.
IF you look at my last post, which was waaayyy too long ago, I wrote about the beautiful P Allen Smith Collection fresh wreath that I recieved from Berry Family Nurseries. It’s been almost 2 months since I received this wreath and I still have it hanging on my door.
I have NEVER have a fresh wreath last this long!! I’m think I might just put a pink ribbon on it and make it a Valentine’s wreath. It is still looking green and I’ve had no needle drop.
So here’s my plug for ordering fresh greenery from Berry Family Nursery – top quality, extremely long lasting, and weeks after Christmas is still welcoming folks at my front door.
And since I didn’t get a chance to say it last month – Merry Christmas to all from my house to yours!!
