Tiarella wherryi


Wherry’s Foamflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.516.100


Foamflowers are close cousins to the Coral-bells. This species is a native wildflower, and a parent to many of the new hybrids. Plants form a small clump of scalloped green leaves, turning bronze in colder months and remaining evergreen in mild winter regions. Short sprays of airy white flowers appear in early summer, sweetly fragrant from up close. An excellent woodland edging plant, preferring rich, moist soil. Clumps may be easily divided in spring or early fall. Do not prune back for the winter.
