Coral Bells are a versatile perennial. The villosa hybrids, native to the southeastern U.S., are known for their tidy mounding habit and excellent heat and humidity tolerance, and are a terrific choice for adding a touch of colour towards the front of a border. Leaves emerge a startling bright red, and turn darker as they age featuring spots of rose pink. The variegation gets lighter coloured and more noticeable as the season progresses. Protect from hot afternoon sun to prevent leaf scorch. Remove any winter-burned leaves in the spring, otherwise no pruning is required.
