Create fascinating depth in your dimly lit garden with the incredible foliage and flowers of this exciting perennial. Low-slung Cutting Edge Foamflower Tiarella (Tiarella ‘Cutting Edge”) is the perfect choice to embolden areas with these challenging environmental conditions.

Cutting Edge Foamflower Tiarella is beloved for their showy ornamental features. To say that it really commands attention is an understatement!

You won’t believe your eyes when you see the frothing sea of tall, creamy-white flowers with a memorable bottlebrush form. These spring flowers capture all available light in the shade, and draw butterflies and beneficial pollinators.

Trim the blooms once they are finished, and you’ll start the “foliage season”. Gorgeous leaves are finely dissected, like an expensive Japanese Maple tree leaf.

The background is bright green, but Cutting Edge amps up the interest with dramatic maroon central veining and accents. It’s an incredible presentation that lasts all season-long.

Mass a bunch together and create ribbons of color and excitement through the shady areas of your landscape. Use two or three as an unforgettable focal point under a trickling fountain or to draw attention to an architectural feature.

These petite perennials are the perfect plant for spring interest. They are a great fit in smaller gardens, borders and containers.

This woodland perennial is native to North America and grows in a neat clump to decorate dappled to full shade. It thrives in humus-rich, moisture-retentive soil…and remains evergreen in warmer climates.

You will love how the unique blooms and vivid foliage transforms your low light spaces.
