My friend got me hooked (heuched?) with a start of basic coral bells, and now I can't stop. Fortunately, they make great companions for perennial geraniums, my other current "can't pass a new one by" plant. Great article, and a nice selection of photos!

Thank you Janet! All it took was one or two to see what great plants they are. And such a great selection to choose from!
