how to grow and care
Foam Flowers thrive in partial to full shade with moist, well-drained, rich acidic soil. They prefer mild temperatures and require consistent moisture without waterlogging. Challenges include leaf spot and powdery mildew, with slugs and vine weevils as common pests. Seasonally, mulching in autumn is beneficial, while reducing water in winter is recommended. Spring calls for cleanup of dead foliage, and summer requires monitoring for adequate moisture during dry spells.

From spring to summer white flowers bloom profusely along the stalks. It produces seeds in summer. It prefers moist soil with partial shade such as in woodland and forest areas.
Tiarella trifoliata
Sugar-scoop
Sugar-scoop (Tiarella trifoliata) is a native perennial herb found throughout the western United States and Canada. It grows in moist woodlands and near streambanks. Another common name for the plant is the Three-Leaf Foamflower, a reference to its trifoliate leaves.
Tiarella polyphylla
Foamflower
The height of the flower stem is 10 to 25 cm. The flowering period is summer and a large number of white-broken petal-like buds are attached diagonally downward on the top of the flower stem. The leaves alternate on the stem and have maple-shaped leaves.
Tiarella cordifolia 'Pink Skyrocket'

Heartleaf foamflower 'Pink Skyrocket' is distinct for its pink cones of flowers, which bloom in summer, and shiny green leaves, which turn bronze or black in autumn. A cultivar of Tiarella cordifolia, its name refers to its flowers' appearance of shooting upward. At 15 to 30 cm tall, it serves as an excellent ground cover.
Tiarella cordifolia 'Crow Feather'
Heartleaf foamflower 'Crow Feather'
Known as the showiest of all tiarellas, heartleaf foamflower 'Crow Feather' displays pink buds with white flowers in the spring and strikingly colorful foliage in the colder months. A foamflower hybrid, this cultivar was named for the "crow feathers" imprinted on each leaf during the winter. Heartleaf foamflower 'Crow Feather' is extremely popular for its year-round ornamental value, resistance to disease and pests, and ease of care.
Tiarella 'Sugar and Spice'

Dracaena
Dracaena
Dracaena are popular house plants that are easy to grow. They can tolerate low-light conditions and require little watering. Their leaves range from variegated to dark green. Their characteristic traits include woody stems that grow slowly but offer a striking appearance for small spaces such as apartments or offices.
Ficus
Fig trees
Fig trees have been cultivated in many regions for their fruits, particularly the common fig, F. carica. Most of the species have edible fruits, although the common fig is the only one of commercial value. Fig trees are also important food sources for wildlife in the tropics, including monkeys, bats, and insects.
Rubus
Brambles
Brambles are members of the rose family, and there are hundreds of different types to be found throughout the European countryside. They have been culturally significant for centuries; Christian folklore stories hold that when the devil was thrown from heaven, he landed on a bramble bush. Their vigorous growth habit can tangle into native plants and take over.
Acer
Maples
The popular tree family known as maples change the color of their leaves in the fall. Many cultural traditions encourage people to watch the colors change, such as momijigari in Japan. Maples popular options for bonsai art. Alternately, their sap is used to create maple syrup.
Prunus
Prunus
Prunus is a genus of flowering fruit trees that includes almonds, cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots. These are often known as "stone fruits" because their pits are large seeds or "stones." When prunus trees are damaged, they exhibit "gummosis," a condition in which the tree's gum (similar to sap) is secreted to the bark to help heal external wounds.
Solanum
Nightshades
Nightshades is a large and diverse genus of plants, with more than 1500 different types worldwide. This genus incorporates both important staple food crops like tomato, potato, and eggplant, but also dangerous poisonous plants from the nightshade family. The name was coined by Pliny the Elder almost two thousand years ago.
Rosa
Roses
Most species of roses are shrubs or climbing plants that have showy flowers and sharp thorns. They are commonly cultivated for cut flowers or as ornamental plants in gardens due to their attractive appearance, pleasant fragrance, and cultural significance in many countries. The rose hips (fruits) can also be used in jams and teas.
Quercus
Oaks
Oaks are among the world's longest-lived trees, sometimes growing for over 1,000 years! The oldest known oak tree is in the southern United States and is over 1,500 years old. Oaks produce an exceedingly popular type of wood which is used to make different products, from furniture and flooring to wine barrels and even cosmetic creams.
