Tiarella cordifolia Brandywine was introduced in the early 1990's from Dunvegan Nursery (located in the Brandywine River valley). Brandywine has white flowers with yellow stamens, is glossy in appearance, and heart shaped in leaf form ( with a small red heart), slightly running ( runners 1x a year 2-4" in length). A very hardy plant grows successfully from zone 3-zone 8. A F1 hybrid of T Oakleaf x T, wherryii. SinclairA ( breeder).
