A planting of Tiarella cordifolia Heartleaf foamflower
creates an impressive show with itís dense white spires above the handsome
foliage (suggestive of maple or oak leaves) and is an attractive woodland
favorite from summer through fall, turning a beautiful red in autumn. The white
flowers often have a slight pink accent, grow about 12 inches tall and are great
for shaded rock gardens, woodland gardens, border fronts, and wild gardens. Foamflower
will naturalize and can be planted in moist
areas along stream banks or
planted in mass to create an
attractive ground cover.
Tiarella cordifolia Heartleaf foamflower is easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade and prefers a moist site high in organic matter with partial shade to shade. It is a compact native wildflower with semi-glossy, oval to heart-shaped 3 to 7-lobed 4 inch leaves; that turn bronze in the fall. The airy, white, loosely arranged flowers bloom in mid-spring. Foamflower spreads by short rhizomes and is not drought tolerant. Seeds are cold stratified and germinate at 30/15 C in light.
Foamflower is clump-forming perennial which spreads rapidly by runners (stolons)
to form dense, 1-2' wide clumps of foliage.
Leaves rise directly from the stolons and may have reddish variegation along the
veins. Foliage is evergreen in mild winters, often turning reddish bronze in
autumn and winter. Tiny, white flowers with very long stamens (foamy texture of
stamens results in the common name) appear in airy racemes in spring for about 6
weeks on numerous, erect, wiry, mostly leafless flower stems which rise well
above the foliage clump to a height of 10-12". Flower buds are pinkish..
Plants are in the same family as Heuchera, Tellima and Mitella and called false
miterwort because of its similarity to Mitella (miterwort).
