Ornamental Features

Dale's Strain Coral Bells is primarily valued in the garden for its distinctive form, with the flower stalks towering over the foliage. It features dainty spikes of pink bell-shaped flowers rising above the foliage from late spring to early summer. Its attractive crinkled lobed leaves emerge chartreuse in spring, turning grayish green in color with distinctive dark gray veins and tinges of silver. As an added bonus, the foliage turns a gorgeous red in the fall.

Planting & Growing

Dale's Strain Coral Bells will grow to be about 18 inches tall at maturity extending to 24 inches tall with the flowers, with a spread of 20 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 18 inches apart. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. As an evegreen perennial, this plant will typically keep its form and foliage year-round.
