I have not had much experience with Foamflowers but was intrigued at their "cuteness" ... so put in a few last year. They are up and ready to bloom .. I was surprised to see it with so many buds and just a year in the ground. It was a fairly small plant that I put in. I think this is a winner in the woodland garden.

Very hardy little Tiarella that is one of the first Tiarellas to come into flower.
Here in the UK it has survived 2 severe Winter's with hard frosts.
It lives up to it's name, the flowers do resemble tiny rockets and, once established, it carries lots of blooms.

A hardy little Tiarella I purchased in a co-op as a tiny plug.

It bloomed it's first year, which surprised me.
