Coral bells is a beautiful flower known for its wonderful and rich shades of purple, red and deep green. This flowering plant is highly prized by botanists and gardeners alike as an attractive and colorful addition to any garden or yard.
It will grow well in almost any climate, whether the soil is sandy acid, sandy loam or clay loam. It thrives on a healthy container or sunny window sill. The plant is not frost tender, so if you live in the Northern regions you may want to use a trellis to help support the plant. Coral bells are ideal plants for a butterfly garden as well, so consider adding a few in your flowerbeds. To further improve their beauty and appeal, try planting some along the fence line to brighten up your yard.
