Garden Plant: Sugar and Spice Foam Flower Tiarella
Product Description: Sugar and Spice Foam Flower Tiarella
Tiarella Sugar and Spice, Tiarella ‘ Sugar and Spice’ (P P#16,738), is the result of extensive breeding efforts at Terra Nova Nurseries, and perhaps the best Tiarella ever! The dramatic, lacy leaves are adorned with heavily marked dark centers and have a shiny appearance that almost appears to be lacquered.
In spring, a profusion of lightly fragrant bottlebrush flowers are displayed for a very long time.
The flowers of Tiarella ‘ Sugar and Spice’ are white with a unique pink frosting.
‘ Sugar and Spice’ will do best in full shade and needs average to moist soil.
Try planting this popular perennial with Lamium ‘ White Nancy’, Hosta ‘ Patriot’ or ‘ Japanese Painted Fern’ for contrasting color.
To create a more neat appearing plant, remove the old foliage before new leaves emerge.
The plant clumps can be divided every 2 or 3 years in the spring.
It can be planted as a ground cover or mingled with other shade loving plants.
Other popular used for this plant are container plantings, in borders, and as a cut flower.
Foamflowers are close cousins to the coral bells, with similar sprays of flowers over a low clump of foliage.
