‘Plum Pudding’ is a hybrid coral bells cultivar. It is a clump-forming perennial which features large, shiny, silvery, plum-purple leaves with dark-purple veining and conspicuous but non-showy whitish flowers. The rounded, lobed, long-petioled leaves form a basal mound (to 8″ tall) which may spread to 16″ wide. Tiny whitish flowers borne in open, airy panicles appear in late spring to early summer on slender wiry stems rising well above the foliage mound (typically to 26″ tall). An introduction of Terra Nova Nurseries in Oregon.
