Exciting new selections with incredible foliage patterns have put coralbells on the map. Previously enjoyed mainly for their spires of dainty reddish flowers, coralbells are now grown as much for the unusual mottling and veining of different-color leaves. The low clumps of long-stemmed evergreen or semi-evergreen lobed foliage make coralbells fine groundcover plants. They enjoy humus-rich, moisture-retaining soil. Beware of heaving in areas with very cold winters.
Lungwort has lance-shape, usually mottled leaves that contrast well with the rounded coralbells leaves.Astilbe
The fluffy red, pink, or white plumy flowers and ferny leaves of astilbe combine well with coralbells in shaded, moist sites.Hosta
Bold-foliage hostas prefer moist soil and somewhat shaded conditions, making them perfect partners for coralbells.Japanese painted fern
The delicately variegated markings of Japanese painted fern echo the markings on coralbells foliage.
