Tiarella ‘Elizabeth Oliver’ (foamflower ‘Elizabeth Oliver’) a wonderful low-maintenance perennial that can thrive in any woodland inspired garden.

This foamflower has become a classic among the fancy-leaved varieties of Tiarellas available today. It has striking deeply-lobed leaves with heavy maroon markings and light pink flowers. They spread by 6-12″ runners to make a dense patch which can captivate anyone passing by it . This cultivar and ‘Tiger Stripe’ are involved in the ancestry of most of the new cut-leaved and heavily-marked Tiarellas on the world market today.

The straight species of foamflower (Tiarella cordifolia) is native to North America, which ranges from the Appalachian Mountains to Nova Scotia and Alabama to Minnesota.
