Coral Bells are extremely tolerant, surviving in full sun or partial shade. These plants flourish in shady spots or rock gardens! Coral bells feature red, purple, or green lobed leaves and woody stalks. Coral bells are semi-evergreen, grow quickly, and produce flowers for months.
Most Popular Colors: Reddish pink, coral, bright red, cream.
Blooming Season: Spring through fall.
Soil Preferences: Hummus-rich, moisture-retaining soil.
Climate Preferences: Winter-hardy in most temperate climates, but cannot tolerate winters with far below-freezing temperatures.
Sun Exposure: Full sun to partial shade - most varieties require shade in southern regions, and many hold color better in shade.
Landscaping Tips: These plants make great fillers for shade spots or rock gardens. They provide thick foliage when planted in groups, and the variety of foliage colors available can add interest.
Planting: Plant coral bells in well-drained soil, and water weekly throughout the first summer.
- Keep soil evenly moist.
- Prune back foliage after blooming to encourage better growth.
