Candy Striper Foamflower: Tiarella 'Candy Striper' - 1GAL Pot CM Tall
Tiarella 'Candy Striper' is a showy perennial with heart-shaped leaves adorned with dark pink stripes. It produces spikes of pink and white flowers, attracting pollinators.
Caring for a foamflower (Tiarella spp.) involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. Foamflowers are shade-loving perennials that prefer moist, well-draining soil enriched with organic matter. Plant them in a location with dappled or partial shade, as direct sunlight can scorch their delicate foliage. Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry periods, but avoid waterlogging. Mulching around the base of the plant helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. Regularly deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming and remove any damaged or yellowing leaves. Foamflowers benefit from a light application of balanced fertilizer in early spring. These plants are generally resistant to pests and diseases but should be monitored for any signs of trouble. With proper care, your foamflower will produce charming spikes of delicate, frothy flowers and add beauty to your shade garden.
