Tiarella Heronswood Mist

Foam flower (Tiarella 'Heronswood Mist') tee-ar-EL-lah Genus:  Tiarella The leaves of this clump-forming variety look as if they have been dusted by a fine mist of pink, cream, and green. It is a rebloomer, and in spring it  produces a profusion of fragrant light pink flowers on spires that can reach 15 inches, rising above the foliage which grows to about 6 inches tall and wide. Noteworthy Characteristics:  Tiarellas are at home in moist woodland environments. In the garden they make wonderful carpets of foliage. For a long period from spring into summer, the profusion of foamy flowers can be appreciated up close or from a distance. Tiarellas are a great foil to early spring bulbs. Grow 'Heronswood Mist' as a groundcover or edger in a shady border or woodland garden. Care:  Provide rich, moist soil in part or full shade. In winter, wet soils can be fatal for this foam flower. Propagation:  Divide the rhizomes in spring. Problems:  Rust, powdery mildew, slugs, weevils.
