Green Spice coral bells is a good chameleon. It is an evergreen variety with large leaves that emerge bright green with silvery grey marbling in spring, turn dark green with crimson red veins in summer, and changing to burgundy red and a little bit of orange in various depths on top foliage in winter while lower leaves remain green.

In June and July small, creamy white, nor very showy flowers appear atop about 50 cm tall stems but if you think they spoil the image of the perfect leaves you can cut them off yet before they begin to bloom. The leaves remain nice and healthy throughtout all winter if the temperature is mild, still, we suggest removing them all in early spring to encourage new growths.

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. They are fully hardy to abt. -34°C (USDA zone 4) and can be grown in outdoor pots where they look particularly pretty thanks to the foliage overlapping the pot edges.
