A new line of clumping, heat tolerant; Baltimore, Wilmington, Washington, D.C.and Philadelphia (and anywhere else) humidity tolerant line of truly NATIVE Tiarellas (foamflowers). Giving each homeowner a little piece of easy ecology for their backyard. Foamflowers are food for honey bees, they preserve water because they are drought tolerant – especially if they are bred with only East Coast native species, and they control erosion on hard to landscape areas. And let’s not forget their bounty of blooms in early Spring, followed by handsome foliage all summer long and often fiery-red or golden-amber winter colors.
Stephanie is an icon in the perennial world. I’ve always called her my “agent” because even when I was very young, getting started in this industry, she was always telling me and everyone she could how great I was doing. It’s fun to have an agent – especially an unpaid agent!
Stephanie choose this new selection to bear her name. It has very shiny leaves and bubbelicious, bubblegum-pink blooms. The winter color is like a shiny summer eggplant and it is a quick growing clump.
