Southern Comfort coral bells is a true gem. It produces multicoloured mounds of rounded, shallowly lobed leaves which are the biggest among all orange-coloured varieties: 16-17 cm across. They are in shades of amber, orange, burnished copper, and cinnamon peach. They are evergreen.

Small, white flowers are composed in erect panicles atop 50-60 cm tall, dark orange stems from midsummer until early autumn. They can be cut off if only beautiful foliage is what you desire. The plant shows exceptional vigour and forms low mounds. It was bred by Janet Egger from Terra Nova® Nurseries in Oregon, USA, and patented as PP20364 (USA) and EU23399 (Europe) in 2009.

Coral bells can take almost any soil with ample moisture and good drainage. They do best in partial shade or filtered sun, however, if you make sure they will not dry out you can place them in full sun, too. They can also live in dark shade where their colours will not be too rich, such location is usually best for light coloured varieties. Cut off all leaves in early spring to encourage growth of new foliage. Fully hardy to abt. -34°C (USDA zone 4), and suitable for outdoor pots.
