Coral Bells

USDA Hardiness Zone 4-9

Near black, glossy, rounded leaves with creamy white flowers. Tidy, reliable and compact. Great in containers, along walkways, or as a border plant. Spectacular planted with green, yellow and silver companion plants. Airy blooms and intense leaves serve well as cut flowers.
This is suppose to be a more vigorous grower than 'Obsidian' with a darker shade of black.
