Flower of the week: Tiarella


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!
