A Spring Symphony

April 10th, 2018

Tiarellas are commonly known as foam flowers due to their frothy blooms.

Tiarella cordifolia ‘Spring Symphony’ is my favourite, producing a mass of elegant, dainty slightly fragrant flower spikes of white stars that open below a tight, apple-blossom-pink poker of buds.  These flowers bring light to any shady spot.  The froth of flowers seems to float above its attractive, deeply lobed, vivid green leaves which have a small distinctive dark blotch in the centre forming a wonderful carpet of foliage throughout the summer.

Great as ground cover in a shady spot, I would suggest planting it in multiples for best effect.

Tiarella prefers moist rich soil so add organic matter before planting.

Cut back flower stems after flowers have faded and remove dead leaves in early spring.
