Tiarella wherryi (Saxifragaceae)
(tee-a-REL-la WARE-ee-eye)
Foamflower

Delicate flower stalks appear in early spring from low mounds of soft maple-like foliage. Clustered buds begin rosy-pink, opening into spires of tiny white star-flowers. Tiarella is breathtaking en masse, as a sea of bloom spreads out over the forest floor. Foliage is semi-evergreen in warmer areas and develops a burgundy-purple cast in winter; clumping plants form a compact groundcover in moist well-drained sites with average-to-rich soil.
