Why the Frosted Violet Coral Bells?
The front of the border must look good in all seasons. Whatever’s in that significant spot is often the first thing visitors notice when approaching your home. Frosted Violet Coral Bells is the perfect candidate for such a high-profile area. Throughout the year, it features plummy purple foliage that looks sharp and complements all the other plants around it. Early in the year, Frosted Violet puts out bright rosy leaves that glow in the spring sunshine. With warmer weather, the foliage matures to a fine silver-frosted purple with dark, slate-colored veins. Let this sensational Spirit make a sleek first impression in your landscape!
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. Frosted Violet Coral Bells arose from a breeding program at the nursery of Charles Oliver of Scottdale, Pennsylvania. With its splendid coloration, vigorous growth, and dense habit, it was a standout. Oliver introduced Frosted Violet to the public in 2002.
How to use in the landscape?
Flowers, too! Frosted Violet Coral Bells is grown primarily for its captivating silvery purple foliage, but its blooms are a nice bonus. In summer, tiny, airy pink blossoms rise on slim stems, making a lovely accompaniment to the dark, sultry leaves.

How To Plant
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 Frosted Violet in rich, organic, well-drained soil that is moist but never soggy. Trim off spent flower spikes if you find them unattractive. Frosted Violet is evergreen; clean up any winter-damaged foliage in early spring. Black vine weevils can be a problem in some areas. You can control them organically with beneficial nematodes if this is the case, or simply keep your Coral Bells in containers.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
