I just bought one online. It is completely different color than yours - more brown, less red. Still love it though. Hope it is environmental and my BL will be red too :)

It is more red in the spring and turns a brassy color later into the summer. I agree, it is a favorite of mine also, and so full of flowers! I don't care for the flowers on most of these plants, but Brass Lanterns has tons of them, and they are lovely.

LOL I was just thinking the same thing. I got mine last week and have been very happy with the plant and its coloring. I cannot wait to see what else it is going to do. This one is a winner. Have a great grow day! Paula

That looks exactly like my 'Sweet Tea.' I don't think they are much different at all.

I believe the difference is that 'Brass Lantern' fades to a golden brass color as the foliage matures and 'Sweet Tea' doesn't, it stays red/copper. But I do not grow 'Sweet Tea' at the moment.

'Brass Lantern' looks great beside day lilies, or beside a brass lantern!!! Lovery companions.

Oh shoot! I passed this one up when I saw it at the nursery. Should have gotten it.

paula_b ...Nice use of pots in with the garden plants and looks like some small ones growing out of rocks? I like looking at pictures like this where all the plants look so lush and happy. Very nice!

I absolutely love this one! I have LOTS of Heuchera's and Heucherella's and this one is my favorite right now.
