Features

notes

Delightful at the front of a shady border, Tiarella Raspberry Sundae has striking semi-evergreen, clump-forming  foliage, the leaves deeply cut and attractively marked. In late spring delicate buds (belying its hardy nature) emerge, in a rash of raspberry pink borne on fine, straight stalks, opening out into a lacy froth of starlike flowers.

Insights

This wonderfully accommodating plant originates in the wooded, mountainous areas of North America. There it is sometimes referred to as the Foam Flower due to the visual effect, from afar, created by the open flowers. The ‘foam’ of flowers also attracts bees. It is a recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence.

Details

From late spring to early summer a mass of straight, fine stalks carry racemes of pink flowers which open into a mass of delicate white flowers.

Planting
  • Moist, well drained soil

Care
