Tiarella wherryi

£6.50

A rather delicate looking, yet tough plant that slowly leaps across the soil creating low ground cover. The short spikes of starry, white flowers open from pale pink buds on slender stems above a mound of mid-green, vine shaped leaves. Great for woodlands, and shadier spots in the garden.

Product Description

A stunning, versatile and easy to grow garden choice, Tiarella wherryi (Wherry’s Foamflower) ground cover features a lush clump of heart shaped, lobed green leaves with reddish purple veining that turn bronze in the colder months. In late Spring, attractive pinkish white star-shaped flowers are borne on slender stems that will last through the Summer and delight the bees – especially if you cut back spent flower stems to encourage new blooms.

Semi-evergreen, with some of the foliage dying back in Winter, Tiarella wherryi make a lovely colourful low growing addition to the front of mixed beds and borders or woodland shadier areas where some other plants would not thrive, they also make a great container plant. Highly effective as a weed supressing ground cover carpet if planted in groups, they will provide near year-round colour with the added interest of their plume stalks of delicate flowers from late Spring through to early-mid Summer (trim these flower stalks down to their base when they have gone brown and the plant will continue to produce flowers – though with less regularity towards the end of their flowering season).
