Coral Forest is a lovely coral bells variety cultivated mostly for its flowers. In late spring and early summer, which is usually from mid June in zone 6, rise 30-40 cm tall, deep burgundy red stems with upright panicles composed of small, rich coral red, tubular flowers with yellow stamens in the throat. Under good conditions the flowering may last almost two months. Leaves are mid green, marbled lighter green, and have undulated margins.

Coral bells can take almost any soil, as well as full sun and humidity. For best results grow it in humus-rich, constantly moist soil in full sun or part shade. Fully hardy to abt. -40°C (USDA zone 3) and can be grown in outdoor pots. Commonly used in mass plantings.
