Why plant Palace Purple Coral Bells?

If purple is your passion, then here’s a Spirit to satisfy your color craving. Palace Purple Coral Bells brings rich burgundy-purple foliage to your garden for months and months—all year long in mild climates. The tops of the Maple-shaped leaves range in color from shimmering purple to deep chocolate-red, depending on the time of year and exposure, while the undersides reveal glowing ruby-red when the sun catches them just right. Palace Purple goes with everything. Use this easy edger to give definition to pastel-colored flowers; it also holds its own with bolder colors. A classic.

This is the one that started it all. Thanks to breeders’ efforts, Coral Bells are available in a rainbow of colors these days, but Palace Purple was the first one to wear a color other than green. Brian Halliwell, a curator at Kew Gardens in England, found it growing in a bed near the Queen’s Palace on the grounds of that famous botanic garden in 1980. Palace Purple was introduced to the U.S. in 1986, although it was an American native all along. The seed had come from a population of purple-leaved Coral Bells growing in the Southeast.

How to use Palace Purple Coral Bells in the landscape?

How To Plant Palace Purple 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 Palace Purple in rich, organic, well-drained soil that is moist but never soggy. Palace Purple 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 Water

Water as soon as they arrive! Coral Bells need to be watered regularly to maintain evenly moist soil for proper establishment in the landscape.

How To Fertilize

Fertilizing Purple Coral Bells is recommended to take place in the spring. Fertilizing this plant however, is not required, although if you wish to help jumpstart your plants growth we recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food!

How To Prune

Pruning these Coral Bells is not required but it is recommended to clean up when needed. Prune back the wilted coral bells when the plant is dormant to have that clean winter look.
