foamflower Interesting Notes

Another useful group of plants for the shade garden are the foamflowers (Tiarella cordifolia). This woodland native makes an excellent groundcover, with its running mounds of fuzzy maple-shaped leaves and delicate upright spikes of foamy white to pink flowers. Hybridizers have been busy with this plant in recent years, and now we have a whole menagerie of interesting leaf forms to complement the spring blossoms.
