Coralbells, Zone 3-9

Coralbells are an easy-care perennial. They can grow 1 to 3 feet in height and 6-18inches wide. Coralbells are a low-maintenance plant and grow best in places that are drier with more drainage. Coralbells can have green, pink, red, and white flowers with gold, silver, and burgundy colored foliage. Coralbells attract birds and are a good plant to grow in containers.
