Obsidian Coral Bells features dainty spikes of light green, bell-shaped flowers rising above the mounds of foliage. Its attractive, crinkled lobed leaves emerge burgundy in spring, turning dark purple to black in color with curious deep purple undersides the rest of the year. These leaves at this time also become smooth and shiny. This foliage color helps to create amazing contrast and texture compared to other plants in shady areas. It has great versatility, being utilized in shade gardens, containers, and semi-shady locations. Be sure keep soil moist in the heat of summer, as coral bells do not like drying out. On the flip side, they will not tolerate poor draining soils. Do not cut this plant back in the fall; instead, remove any dead and tattered foliage in spring. Both foliage and flowers can be used in fresh floral bouquets.
