Features of Coral Bells


Compact mound shaped plants offering a variety of foliage colors as well as light airy flower stalks. Excellent plants for foliage effects.


  • Prefer rich organic soil that is uniformly moist and well-drained. Good drainage essential for successful overwintering.
  • Most prefer shade to light shade with a few tolerating sun locations.
  • Deadhead after bloom to improve appearance and encourage a slight re-bloom.
  • Plants get woody stems at the base over time. Dig and replant deeper or mound compost around the stem to keep the crown in contact with the soil.
