Gardeners' Notes:

Positive WinkiePlinker On Oct 16, 2004, WinkiePlinker from Toledo, OH wrote:

I purchased three Cora Bells as filler in a bed because of their lovely foliage. They have come back every year and are fuller each year with little or no attention. I love their compact form and dark burgandy leaves. Last month I purchased the "Amber Waves" variety from a closing greenhouse while on vacation for just $1.00. When I returned home days later, I split it in three parts to share with a couple of friends. It's doing very well as winter begins setting in here in northwest Ohio. The gold and green, peach and rose and red colors are beautiful and I hope it survives our harsh winters. Cora Bells are fast becoming one of my favorite foliage plants.
