My first and still favorite Tiarella.
This one, while a shade plant, will take some sun.
It wintered over well w/ the upper leaves creating an olive colored cover.
Come early Spring the protected lower leaves quickly emerged, some under the snow.
By mid March flower stalks developed starting to open in early April.
Now in late April it is in full flower and gorgeous.
We use Japanese Painted Ferns as a backdrop for it.
They compliment each other nicely.
