description for "Coral Bells: Heuchera x brizoides 'Bressingham Hybrids'"

'Bressingham Hybrids' brings an assortment of colors to the garden; red, pink, coral, white, and shades in-between. This strain will bloom the second year. Produces large numbers of small flowers and has scalloped leaves. Generally taller than other Heuchera species. This mixed strain is a seed-propagated variety. Although coral bells bloom in late spring, the flowers are usually not nearly as showy as the foliage. Provide partial shade with rich, consistently moist soil that has adequate drainage. Coral bells hate wet feet! Does best in cooler climates. – edited by dtd pbcouchman

History:

Heuchera x brizoides was originally a cross between H. sanguinea and H. americana, but now incorporates parentage from H. micrantha as well as other Heuchera species. 'Bressingham Hybrids' was selected at the Bloom Nurseries in the 1950s.
