Blooming this week: Foamflower

One of our streamside wildflowers this week is Tiarella cordifolia, or Foamflower.

Foamflower
 We see these in late April through May, when they usually form small clusters of plants in damp and shady spots. Never growing much taller than mid-calf, Foamflower is reportedly a great native ground cover for heavily shaded areas in the lawn. Get out and enjoy our native flora this week!
