One of the parent plant is definitely H. sanguinea so prefer sun to light shade.

An easy, beautiful sm. groundcover. The more sun it gets the more water it likes. Hummingbirds are attracted to the pinkish flowers that bloom over a long period-most of the summer. Leaves are a pretty light green. I recommend this for any garden, it will not grow too large.

The Bressingham Hybrids are a seed-grown strain of Heucheras, and also vary widely by plant. The ideal is a small leaf, very ruffled, mottled with silver and pink and silver veining. The flowers are an ornamental addition to the foliage, and allowing the stalks to remain adds to the light, airy effect in the garden. Very worthwhile addition to the garden.

Seed will not come true; often seed does not set, but some interesting new plants will result.
