Heuchera 'Bressingham Hybrid'

[Photo: Heuchera 'Bressingham Hybrid' in early spring.]Heuchera, known in English as "coral bells", "alum root", or by the genus name, and in French as heuchère, is a genus of perennials native to North America. They are grown for their delicate spires of bell shaped flowers, or increasingly for their foliage; many interesting new cultivars are available.

It looks like this particular cultivar is evergreen. It looks pretty sad right now, but then it looked pretty sad last summer where it almost drowned when it turned out the barrel it was planted in didn't have enough drainage to cope with last years heavy rains. In this new improved location I'm hoping it will take off.
