Foamflowers are charming North American woodland plants that thrive in part shade and a moisture retentive setting.
Jeepers Creepers is a creeping form of Foamflower. It is somewhere between a clumper and a runner, making it ideal as a weed suppressing shade ground cover. They are so charming threading their way around taller plants in the garden.
The fuzzy green evergreen leaves are patterned with a central maroon marking in the center and along the veins. In fall and winter, the leaves transform into a rich burgundy display providing color and interest.
In spring, short spikes of airy, star-shaped white flowers often bloom for a very extended period of time.
This hardy shade perennial requires little or no maintenance. A great ingredient for mixed container gardens. where it combines with Hostas, lacy Hardy Ferns, and colorful Heucheras.
Tiarellas are just beginning to gain popularity with US gardeners, and rightfully so. Their wide adaptability, colorful foliage, and sparkling flower display provide true multi-seasonal appeal. Tiarellas (or Foamflowers) thrive where other shade perennials may languish. They tolerate dry shade after established and require little maintenance once planted.
