Also called Mitrewort since each tiny floret looks like a popes Mitre or pointed cap, Foam Flower is famous for forming large patches on the forest floor with large, handsome maple-like leaves. The blooms then rise from the lush, low patches of green on flowering stems that light up the forest with white bursts of bloom--they are the essense of spring. There are also hybrid tiarellas, but most wildflower gardeners think the original is the most beautiful.
