Quick Overview:

?Frosted Violet? is a clump-forming, hybrid coral bells cultivar. Rounded, lobed, new leaves emerge pink-purple in spring, but gradually mature to silvery-purple to plum-purple with dark veining. Leaves take on a fluorescent appearance when sun strikes the leaf-surface hairs. Foliage forms a large basal mound to 12? tall and 24? wide. Tiny, light pink flowers in open, airy panicles appear in late spring to early summer on slender, wiry stems rising well above the foliage mound to 30? tall.

Best grown in organically rich, humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Performs well in full sun in the North, but prefers some shade (particularly in the heat of the afternoon) in the South. Scorch and general foliage decline usually occur if soils are allowed to dry out. If grown in full sun, consistent moisture is particularly important. Remove stems of faded flowers to encourage additional bloom. Some gardeners prefer to remove flower stems before flowering because flowers are not showy and plants are usually grown for their foliage texture and color. Foliage is essentially evergreen in warm winter climates, but the amount of retained foliage color in cold winter climates depends in large part upon the severity of the temperatures. In cold winter climates, a winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving. Divide clumps in spring every 3-4 years.
