Buy Tiarella 'Spring Symphony' (PBR) foam flower: An attractive, shade-tolerant groundcover

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial or deep shade
  • Soil: cool, moist, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Attractive, deeply lobed leaves with a small dark blotch in the centre, make a great carpet of foliage throughout the summer. In late spring, slender stems rise up and hold spikes of tiny star-shaped, blush white flowers. This is a brilliant plant for covering the ground in a shady spot - plant it in large numbers for best effect.

  • Garden care: Removing the faded blooms regularly will prolong flowering and encourage more to come. Cut back and compost the spent flower stems in autumn and apply a dry mulch around the crown of the plant to protect against frost damage

Great for a shady area

I bought this Tiarella because it was said to be a good plant for a shady area. It is and looks very nice. Easy to look after as it can more or less be planted and left to grow.

Excellent plant

Strong healthy perennial. Lush growth and flowered well. It does need some support or it will flop out. Am very pleased with this plant.

Lovely plant.

I bought a large number of these to plant en mass in a north facing border. They are very healthy and flowered for months and all my neighbours commented on how good they looked. The recent very hot weather hasn't really affected them at all, apart from the flowers dying off, but they probably would have died off in the summer whatever the weather.

Atractive plant

As spring is late this year the plant is looking a bit ragged and new growth is just beginning to show and I am hopeful it will flourish with the onset of milder weather.

The plants arrived in good condition. A lovely perennial plant for a shady/woodland spot. Pretty delicate flowers that bloom for many weeks. Bronze coloured foliage remains on the plant through the winter and even withstood the recent snow!

I certainly recommend this plant

A plant with very delicate looking attractive flowers but is easy to grow and happy in difficult positions. I have planted several under a tree where it's dry and not many plants grow and they have been very successful. Would certainly recommend this plant.

How far apart should I plant them and how many would I need to plant fill a 3.8 metre long trough/planter?

Rose

I'm afraid there are no hard and fast rules as plant spacing will really depend on the look you are trying to create - and how quickly you want to wait for it to fill in. Do keep in mind however that each plant will eventually create a mound of foliage around 30cm across.

Helen

Is tiarella spring symphony slug-/snail-resistant?

Helen

Hello, The leaves of this plant can be eaten by slugs, however they are also listed by many asbeing more resistant to them than many other plants.

Helen

Hi, is the foliage at all evergreen? Looking for some evergreen, flowering ground cover to go in front of Hebe Subalpina. Pinks, purples and whites also present in a lightly shaded border. These would be perfect, but open to suggestions. Thanks

JamieW8

Hello, Yes, in milder areas, some (but not all) of the foliage will usually be retained throughout the winter.

Helen

Does this plant cope with dry deep shade? Have a spot under a large conifer tree, but it's very dry. Thank you

Bbk

Hello, Yopu are going to really struggle getting anything established undeneath a well established conifer, as even the toughest plant will need a high level of maintenance if it is going to stand a chance. This tiarella is not really suitable, however if you are determined to try something (and are prepared to put the work in), then the following would be better options...

Could Tiarella Spring Symphony tolerate any sun at all?

CookieLou

Hello, Yes, it won't mind some early morning or late afternoon sun, but it should be protected from it during the hottest part of the day.

Helen

Hello Can you please tell me....when is the best time of year to plant out Tiarella 'Spring Symphony'? Thanks.

Lotrov

Hello, Spring and autumn are ideal, but plants grown in containers (like this one) can be planted at any time of the year.
