Tiarella cordifolia 'Fancy Trails' Allegheny Foamflower



Tiarella cordifolia 'Fancy Trails' has unusual star-shaped leaves with wide maroon to deep brown centers edged with bright green. It is topped by creamy pink bottle brush blooms in spring. Also called Allegheny Foamflower, Tiarella cordifolia 'Fancy Trails' forms clumps that will spread via stolons (runners) and makes a very attractive ground cover. It is semi-evergreen in warmer parts of its range. It is wonderful for the woodland garden or in shade containers. Avoid planting with aggressive species, which may overrun it.

Tiarella cordifolia, also known as Heartleaf Foamflower, is native to the eastern United States and Canada. In the northern U.S. it is found as far west as Minnesota and Wisconsin. It is indigenous to rich deciduous woodlands and open, moist to dry woods particularly along stream banks and other open areas. It will form colonies where conditions are favorable.

Tiarella cordifolia 'Fancy Trails' prefers partial to full shade and rich, consistently moist, well-drained soil.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
