Foamflower with deeply divided leaves, that remind leaf-lobes of maple or oak.
We selected this form out of many seedling of Tiarella cordifolia (which are very variable), but honestly it is still just old good foamflower, that reminds of cultivar 'Oaklef'.
6"/10-12" tall (with/without flowers) x 10-12" wide clumps.
Half shade, shade, average to moist soils, with some organic matter, humus rich soils. Clay and slightly acid soil tolerant plant. Moderately drought tolerant, prefers consistently moist soil.
Hardy in zones 4 to 8.
Deer and rabbit resistant, black walnut tolerant plant. Attracts native bees, flies, moths and butterflies.
The species of Tiarella cordifolia is native to bigger part of eastern USA and Canada, where can be found in cool, moist soil in deciduous woods and along stream banks. See the USDA distribution map.
Tiarella is cousin of similar species - Heuchera, Mittela, Tellima, Tolmiea, and is parent of many cultivars and hybrids (Tiarella hybrids or Heucherella hybrids).
