Foam flowers is a Perennial Wildflower
This native perennial wildflower appears thick, dense mounds of lush evergreen foliage in clumps spanning between 1-3 feet in width. Foliage boasts glossy, maple-like leaves with between 3-9 lobes in different hues of greens. These leaves can be feathered with red or purple veins and may take on a bronze or golden hue during colder months. Come springtime, clusters of small, star-shaped florets in shades of white and pink blossom from leafless stalks extending above the foliage bedding. Blooming foamflowers produce large quantities of blossoms clustered on each stem, reaching heights between 6-12 inches tall. These masses of wispy, delicate flowers daintily adorn their vibrant foliage bedding. This springtime display creates a whimsical frothed appearance above the foliage mat that gives the tiarella plant the name of the foam flower.
Foamflower is an Appealing Ground Cover, especially in Woodland Gardens
Foamflowers can proliferate and spread quickly over time, spreading by sending out runners to fill in open spaces that were quickly taking root in the soil. They fare well in hardy planting zones 3-9 and are relatively low-maintenance. Foamflowers flourish in nutrient-rich, moist soil with sufficient drainage and adequate shade. A few morning hours of sunlight in partial shade is ideal, but the foamflower can thrive in full shade as well.
The foamflower’s evergreen foliage and lower height make it an ideal form of visually appealing ground cover throughout the year, especially in woodland gardens. Foamflower is used for edging in shaded areas around the yard and is well suited for container gardening. The resilience of the foamflower makes it a suitable and attractive accompaniment to rock gardens. However, it may not spread as quickly with the additional challenge of runners taking root in the soil below the rocks. Foamflowers can make excellent companions to other shade-loving plants to create a uniquely beautiful landscape arrangement.
