Tiarella are close relatives to Heuchera and are popular for their range of foliage colour. They are also known as ‘Foam flowers’. They are rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plants that form a clump of neat rounded leaves and small compact, star-shaped flowers that adorn slender stems during spring. Tiarella make an attractive addition to flower beds and borders, or used as under planting of roses and shrubs within a cottage, woodland and informal garden setting. They will grow to an approximate height and spread of 50cm (20”).
Tiarella are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of clay, loam and chalk within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full shade or part shade as they will thrive best in cool conditions. Dig a hole that is the same depth and width as the root ball and space plants 15-20cm (6-8”) apart or 30-60cm (12-24”) apart if you have a larger variety. Water thoroughly and deeply, ensuring the soil is consistently moist throughout active growth.
Cut back spent flowers during the autumn to prolong the flowering period, whilst applying a dry mulch around the crown of the plant to protect against frost damage. This will also retain moisture levels whilst supressing weeds. It is vital to water Tiarella regularly to keep the soil cool and to encourage optimum health and development.
