As a group, the Hybrid Coral Bells offer the gardener a tremendous new range of foliage colours, especially for shady areas. This attractive selection forms a sturdy mound of gently-lobed leaves that are red in spring, turn black in summer and then maroon in fall. Sprays of white bell flowers on dark stems appear in June just above the foliage, but can be removed if desired. Fast grower. In warm regions this is best in part shade but is said to grow well in the South, East and Northwest. Excellent in the border, for edging, and in tubs and mixed containers. Foliage may be tidied up in spring by removing any withered or tired-looking leaves. Evergreen. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
