Coral 2 is such an intricate stitch - as you suggest, maybe a garter or stockinette stitch to contrast its complexity.
Originally I had miscalculated the dimensions of this shawl
that was the previous project that visited the Frog Pond. I had done the lower rectangle in a lightly textured stitch "Little Corners"
