The Tiarella cordifolia, also known as Foamflower, is a beautiful and versatile plant that can thrive in various soil conditions. It prefers moist, well-drained soil with a high organic content, and does well in both acidic and slightly alkaline soils.
This plant thrives in partial shade to full shade, making it a perfect addition to woodland gardens or shady borders.
Foamflower typically grows to be about 6-12 inches in height and 12-18 inches in width, making it a great groundcover option for shaded areas.
It produces delicate foam-like clusters of small, white or light pink flowers in the spring, adding a lovely pop of color to any garden.
This plant pairs well with other shade-loving plants such as Phlox, and Aquilegia (esp 'Little Lanterns'), and creating a lush and diverse garden.
Additionally, Tiarella cordifolia serves as a larval host for the caterpillars of the Eastern Pine Elfin butterfly, making it a valuable addition to any pollinator garden.
