Zone 4 - 9
A new introduction from Terra Nova -- part of the 'Crisp' series. This gem is very ruffled, very dark purple and it stays purple all season. It has a very tight mounding form. Its ruffled foliage is deep burgundy in the spring changing to deep purple, almost black in the summer. Adorned by short white flowers in early-to-mid summer, which are a fabulous contrast to the dark foliage. Perfect for containers, the rock garden or front of the border. Best grown in sun to part-shade. HEIGHT: 20-25 cm SPREAD: 35-40 cm
Extensive breeding has created a fabulous range of ornamental, even exotic foliage. These new varieties are best grown in a cooler, partially shaded location away from the blazing afternoon sun. Generally Coral Bells are very easy to grow provided they have reasonably fertile, well-drained soil. These are low maintenance perennials, free from pests and disease, that virtually always look very neat and tidy. Most varieties will begin to lose some of their vigour after 3-4 years and will need to be divided. Tiny, coral bell blooms are very attractive to hummingbirds and they also make a good cut flower. A great perennial for the beginner and the collector.
