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.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Heuchera 'Bressingham White'.
