Tiarella 'Dark Eyes'

tee-ar-EL-lah Audio

This running cultivar has notably large light-pink flowers that appear in spring and then rebloom. It has a compact habit with maple-like leaves marked with burgundy centers. Foliage turns bronze in the fall. Plants grow to about 14 inches tall and slightly wider.

Noteworthy CharacteristicsTiarellas are at home in moist woodland environments. In the garden they make wonderful carpets. For a long period from spring into summer, the profusion of foamy flowers can be appreciated up close or from a distance. They are a great foil to early spring bulbs. Grow 'Dark Eyes' as a groundcover or edger in a shady border or woodland garden.

CareProvide moist, rich soil in full sun to part shade.

PropagationDivide the rhizomes in spring.
