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.  Information displayed on this page about  Heuchera x brizoides 'Bressingham White' is based on the research conducted about it in our library and from reliable online resources. We also note those observations we have made of this plant as it grows in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how crops have performed in our nursery field. We will incorporate comments we receive from others, and welcome to hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
