Cutting Edge Foamflower
Spring flowers in the shade!
Tiarella ‘Cutting Edge’ is that plant that you didn’t know you needed until you saw it. It is the perfect plant for your shade garden because it has foliage sort of like other colorful shade lovers – coleus, heuchera, brunnera – with one big distinction. In the spring Tiarella earns its common name, Foamflower, by becoming a frothing sea of 20” tall creamy-white spiky, bottlebrush-type flowers.
To say that it really commands attention is an understatement!
The leaves are finely dissected, like an expensive Japanese Maple tree leaf, and they are bright green with dramatic maroon central veining. They grow in a neat clump that never needs pruning. This woodland perennial is native to North America and thrives in humus-rich soil. It is fine in partial or full shade and is evergreen in many climate zones.
Mass a bunch together and create ribbons of color and excitement through the shady areas of your landscape. Use two or three as focal point under a trickling fountain or to draw attention to an architectural feature. They are even good in pots!
Tiarella ‘Cutting Edge’ will be a show stopping element of your spring and summer garden whether in full flower or just in full leaf. You will love how it transforms your shady spaces. Order yours today!
