I was also thinking Encheveria. Definitely not Aeoniom.

Cobaea Vine

I grow Cobaea every year and I haven't managed to get seed yet, the seed is expensive so going by that maybe it's not easy to get seed.

some garden nursery centres sell Apple tree whips wich you can use for the rootstock,but I think it might be too late to do this year as the Trees are now going into dormancy for the winter.

As long has its been growing ok it will probable be ok,the rust and mildew will be on the leaves and as the leaves will soon be dropping for the winter the problem will be gone with the leaves. Make sure you clean all the leaves away and don't put them in the compost.

I'm not sure it will be rust a picture would be good ,

the light coloured Heucheras do not like full sun they will scorch so it might be this.

a rule of thumb is plant the dark leaved Heucheras in the sun and the lighter leaved ones in the shade.

Plant ID help please

The plant with the curly leaves looks like Robinia Lacey Lady,, and yes the curly leaves are ok it grows like that. In time it should become tree like.
