Tiarella cordifolia is an herbaceous perennial with a horizontal stem that goes by the common name of “Foamflower”.
It is native to the UK and gets its name from the foamy white flowers that emerge on long, thin stems in springtime. It can grow up to 30cm in height and had ovate leaves that become tinged with bronze in autumn – a stunning addition to your garden. Foamflower will bloom for 4-6 weeks but is an attractive plant to have in your garden all year. As long as it is grown in the right soil, Foamflower will not need to be fertilised. Having said this, it might be a good idea to apply a little fertilizer before new growth starts in spring. Foamflower requires full shade and nice moist soil – remember to protect it from extremely wet conditions in the winter though.
Foamflower is a reasonably trouble-free plant to have in your garden, it usually does not have issues with pests or diseases and is safe for pets and children. It is popular to grow as ground cover in shady woodland gardens, or in borders planted next to hardy ferns and hostas.
