Coral Bells

USDA Hardiness Zone 4-9

Bright green leaves with heavy spotting and deep red blooms. Strong grower, hence the name. Great in a container, along walkways or as a border plant. Leaves and blooms also look great as a cut flower. This is dynamic in a part shade setting and very striking in a mass! Easy to grow.
