My tiarella has remained relatively small over the seasons that I have had it, the ground cover near by overtaking it quicker than its own ability to naturalize. Somewhat evergreen through our winters, shrinking during the coldest stretches. Still, lovely addition.

Blooms early. This garden gets flooded several times each spring. Candy Striper never misses a beat.
