Heuchera x brizoides 'Bressingham White' (Bressingham White Coral Bells) - This is a bright, clear-white-flowers selection that we have made from the seed grown Bressingham hybrids, a seedling group resulting from the cross of H. americana, H. micrantha or H. sanguinea that is collectively called H. x brizoides. Panicles of flowers rise above the foliage late spring through summer. The dark green leaves are rounded with 5 to 9 lobes and have scalloped margins. Performs best in sun or light shade, and is hardy down to about 10 degrees F. Plants are attractive to hummingbirds. In their book "Heuchera and Heucherellas: Coral Bells and Foamy Bells" Timber Press 2005 authors Dan Heims and Grahame Ware note that Linnaeus named Heuchera for Johann Heinrich von Heucher, professor of medicine and Botany at Wittenberg University. They further note that the name Heuchera should be pronounced following the person's name it commemorates so the proper pronunciation is HOY-ker-uh.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Heuchera x brizoides 'Bressingham White'.
