Some plants were meant for container planters and hanging baskets, and 'Black Forest Cake' coral bells is a prime example. Those smooth, almost black leaves are stunning against the chartreuse green of a Wilma Cypress or the pale blue tones of lavender or dusty miller. If you want equally show-stopping borders in your garden, combine 'Black Forest Cake' with hebes such as 'Mckeanii' or 'Quicksilver' along with flowering annuals or perennials. And when this coral bells sends up its cherry red flowers in the spring and summer, be prepared to be wowed!
