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 provided on this page is based on the research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations of our nursery crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Heuchera x brizoides 'Bressingham White'.
