Also known as Heartleaf foamflower, this perennial is perfect for shaded areas where you need a fast spreading native after you’ve removed invasive species like Garlic Mustard. These plants send out runners, much like a strawberry plant, and can cover a larger area relatively quickly.
Tiarella cordifolia thrives in moist soil, perfect for a humusy woodland edge. The foliage is bright green and delicate flower spikes appear in the Spring. The small white flowers have long stamens, which account for its common name as the blooms appear “foamy” from a distance.
