Foam flower (Tiarella 'Neon Lights')
tee-ar-EL-lah
Genus:  Tiarella
This clump-forming variety has exquisitely textured, bright green maple-like leaves emblazoned with chocolate centers. In spring, its large pink-kissed-white flowers rebloom lightly on 16-inch stalks. Leaf coloration is best in cool weather. Plants grow to about a foot wide.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Tiarellas are at home in moist woodland environments. In the garden they make wonderful carpets of intricate leaves. For a long period from spring into summer, the profusion of foamy flowers can be appreciated up close or from a distance. Grow 'Neon Lights' as a groundcover or edger in a shady border or woodland garden. It is a great foil to early spring bulbs.
Care:  Provide moist, rich soil in part to full shade.
Propagation:  Divide the rhizomes in spring
Problems:  Rust, powdery mildew, slugs, weevils.
