Description An excellent choice for cool, mid to high elevation gardens. Coral bells is notable for its ability to bloom beautifully even in reasonably heavy shade. Out of basal leaves rises a thin flower stalk with pink blooms in the warm months, this is a reliable bloomer. Plants often occur in habitat on duff covered slopes, so in a garden a well draining soil with organic matter and/or mulch will be ideal.
