Tiarella 'Sugar & Spice' Description

Sugar and Spice takes the realm of foamflowers to an entirely new level. Bred at Terra Nova Nurseries, the leader of new perennial introductions, this tiarella is the result of more than 10 years of breeding!

The goal was to create a colorful new groundcover that has wonderfully marked leaves and evergreen winter foliage.

Combine these attributes with a stunning spring and summer flower display and you arrive at tiarella Sugar and Spice.

This hardy new perennial also thrives in 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. Sugar and Spice has some of the best winter-colored foliage available and they also make great ingredients for container gardens!
