We grow just about all heucheras in our garden for their patterned or bold foliage. This one is the main exception - while its bright-green foliage is nice enough, it is hardly exciting, but the bright red flowers in early summer make you turn your head. We originally had 'Bressingham Red' planted in our hot and dry driveway bed, where it just barely survived, but since we moved it to our partly shaded side garden, it came into its own for a few years, before silently fading away. Recently, we introduced a few new plants of 'Bressingham Beauty' into the garden. Not sure if they are really different from our first lot.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
