I live in a cold zone and Pewter Veil does well anywhere I place it. Lovely contrast to my double blue platycodon, hostas, lilium and daylilies.

Positive RobertWM On Oct 14, 2006, RobertWM from Clawson, MI wrote:

Large than most coralbells, with a striking garden presence. Leaves clump up into almost a bowling ball shape. Always gets attention. Dark maroon/brown leaves with an eye-catching silver network overlaying the whole thing. Flowers easily in partial shade and taller flowers than most, at least two feet high. Tough, durable grower, not especially bothered by odd weather conditions.

Each spring when blooms appear I know the hummingbirds will soon show up. They sip each tiny bell, up and down each stem.
