Tiarella cordifolia - Heartleaf Foamflower


"Foamflower is a small, delicate native herbaceous perennial flower grown in gardens for its neat, interesting foliage and small spikes of creamy white flowers. Despite its slow growth rate, Foamflower can be used as a groundcover as it spreads by underground rhizomes. A similar hybrid, Wherry's foamflower, forms clumps and does not spread by rhizomes. It spreads by slender runners to form colonies.  It is not tolerant to drought conditions. It is found naturally in moist forests, coves, and well-drained bottomlands."  (North Carolina Extension)
