Flower of the week: Tiarella

290415ironbutterfly

Tiarellas are such pretty plants, and so good in shade. You have the benefit of attractive foliage which is semi-evergreen and in spring, spikes of little fluffy flowers rather like those of London Pride. The plant above is ‘Iron Butterfly’. After the cut, ‘Tapestry’.

These photos were taken in the rain, which may explain why they’re not very good. My rule is that the plant must be in flower on the very day I post. Both these plants were nursery sale bargains. Hard to believe no one else wanted them!

Tiarella

I'm living through your garden photos again. I love the tiarella, especially the markings on this one's leaves. That will be pretty all season.

Re: Tiarella

I must try to keep posting garden pics, then!

You're right about the leaves and I may even get another flush of flowers.
