Zone 4 - 9
Bold and striking foliage. This is a sport of 'Marmalade' with ruffled lime coloured leaves and a large mounding habit. According to Terra Nova, the plant breeder, 'Lime Marmalade' is "super vigorous and full of frills. Like Marmalade' it is a tough plant." This is a larger plant than 'Lime Rickey' -- more of a landscape size. Prefers part to full shade. Best to keep it out of the hot afternoon sun. HEIGHT: 25-30 cm SPREAD: 50-60 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.
