Tiarella Neon Lights Foam Flower
The Tiarella Neon Lights, 'Tiarella hybrid', PPAF, also known as Foamflower, is becoming one of the most popular shade perennials on the market today.
‘Neon Lights’ has deeply cut fuzzy green foliage. The highlights of black and purple patterns make it what it is.
Best of all, the coloration is more intense during the winter months, not to mention being lightly fragrant. White flowers appear in the summer; however, Tiarella’s are not especially noted for their flowers.
‘Neon Lights’ has a plant height of 6-8” and a plant spread of 12-15”.
Tiarella will do best in full shade and need average to moist soil.
To create a more neat appearing plant, remove the old foliage before new leaves emerge. The plant clumps can be divided every 2 or 3 years in the spring.
Try planting this popular perennial with Lamium ‘White Nancy’, Hosta ‘Patriot’ or ‘Japanese Painted Fern’ for color contrast.
Neon Lights can be planted as a ground cover or mingled with other shade loving plants. It is also used in borders, as a cut flower, and massed.
