Why plant Obsidian Coral Bells?

Stunning! Obsidian Coral Bells brings high drama to your garden with its deep, dark foliage. The midnight-purple, nearly black leaves make a particularly striking contrast with plants that have silver, gold, blue, or variegated foliage. Unleash your creative spirit and see what combinations you can dream up! Try it with a powder-blue Hosta like Halcyon, or turn up the volume by pairing it with electric-yellow Sweet Kate Spiderwort. Obsidian would look sharp in mixed containers or in any of the formal beds or borders around your home, whether in sun or part shade. Magnificent!

Coral Bells are native Spirits that grow all over North America in different forms. Up until the 1990s, gardeners considered them to be nice garden plants, but nothing too spectacular. Then breeders began to make crosses, and exciting new Coral Bells in brilliant colors began to appear. The charge was led by talented plantsman Dan Heims of Terra Nova Nurseries in Canby, Oregon. Heims and his team developed this selection, too. Terra Nova introduced Obsidian Coral Bells in 2004, and it remains one of its top sellers.

How to use Obsidian Coral Bells in the landscape?

Obsidian Coral Bells add texture and color to your garden without even lifting a finger! Add these flowers in shrub gardens, rock gardens that need some softness, use them as a groundcover, edge pathways, or plant in containers if that floats your boat!

How To Plant Obsidian Coral Bells

Most Coral Bells do best in morning sun, with shade during the hottest part of the day. Bright light will bring out the richest coloring in their foliage, but intense sun can scorch some varieties. Plant Obsidian in rich, organic, well-drained soil that is moist but never soggy.

How To Water

When watering your Obsidian Coral Bells, you’ll want to give them an inch of water per week. Once the plant becomes established it will be able to tolerate some drought.

How To Fertilize

Feeding this fella is easy peasy! In the spring, apply a layer of fertilizer to keep your plant healthy! We recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food.

How To Prune

Once the Obsidian Coral Bells have stopped blooms and you are ready to part with those blooms, you may remove any older blooms. This will encourage a possible second-bloom.
