Tiarella wherryi

Wherry's foam flower

The latin name Tiarella is a diminuative of tiara - a small crown which reflects the shape of the ripe seed pods. 

The common name captures the effect of the tiny star shaped white flowers as they light up the shady woodlands of its home in the Appalachians. 

Combined with sumptuous maroon tinted, pale green hairy leaves, these little white stars look just dandy in a shady glade. 

Ideally grow in cool, moist, humus-rich soil in partial or full shade but these plants can tolerate a wide range of soils and can spread freely. 

Protect from excessive winter wet.
