Noted for its handsome foliage and pink blooms, Tiarella ‘Pink Skyrocket’ (Foam Flower) is a clump-forming herbaceous perennial forming a lush mound of deeply-lobed, shiny green leaves marked with dark purple along the midribs and central veins. In the fall, the foliage turns burnished bronze in full sun, deep shiny black in the shade. In mid to late spring, conical wands of delicate, shrimp pink flowers are borne above the foliage. Use as a groundcover in the woodland or shade garden. Good under shrubs or roses. Evergreen in mild winter climates.

  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
  • Grows up to 6-12 in. tall (15-30 cm) and 12 in. wide (30 cm).
  • Performs best in cool, moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil in partial shade or full shade. Protect from excessive winter wet.
  • A pretty addition to beds and borders, woodland gardens, cottage gardens or rock gardens. Great as a groundcover, for edging or underplanting shrubs and roses.
  • Generally pest and disease free. Keep an eye out for slugs. Deer resistant.
  • Propagate by division in spring.
