Obsidian coral bell blooms sporadically in early summer with tiny white baby’s breath-like flowers on slender stems about 12 inches above the showy foliage. Glossy, purple-maroon, scallop-edged foliage holds its color all season. Solely as a foliage plant this coral bell stands out boldly in any setting.

The white flowers are very small on slender 18-inch stems that rise above the mounded foliage. Most evaluators did not consider the flowers as significant. Two commented that their plants did not flower at all. Heuchera ‘Lime Rickey’ has bright chartreuse leaves that are rounded with wavy edges and each leaf is about 2 inches in diameter. The bright color and the ruffled texture stand out in the shadier garden. Two out of six evaluators had some black spot on the leaves.
‘Winter Thrillers’ is a series of hellebores that offers different colored blooms that range from single-flowered greens to double pinks. Flowering begins in April as the new foliage emerges. The 2.5-inch wide flowers were both single and double. Some plants in evaluators’ gardens had cream-colored flowers tinged with green and burgundy spots. Other flowers were yellow or purple fading to green.
