Tiarella cordifolia 'Elizabeth Oliver' (Saxifragaceae)
Elizabeth Oliver Foamflower
Deeply lobed and heavily veined in dark maroon, 'Elizabeth Oliverí remains one of the best cut-leaved Tiarella hybrids available. Like other Foamflowers, it is an excellent native groundcover for shady areas and woodland gardens; spreading by runners to form a dense, low mat. Pale-pink-to-white flowers open atop tall wands in spring, creating bright drifts of frothy bloom en masse. In fall, foliage darkens with blushes of burgundy-purple. Mixes well with ferns, bluebells and other woodland ephemerals.
