Tiarellas - Foamflowers

These Natives came in two forms/species years ago: T. cordifolia -- the 'Runner' and T. wherryi -- the 'Clumper' which spreads slowly and is taller than T. cordifolia.  We've been specific, when possible about correct nomenclature because it tells you a bit about the plant's growth habits.  Hybrids - and there are many  gorgeous new Hybrids coming out - are crosses between the two with varying degrees of 'running' and/or 'clumping'. 

Hardiness:  We see differences of opinions on Zones.  Dr. Leonard Perry at the U. of Vt. says Zone 3-8 on all.  Terra specifically lists Zone 9 on it's plants.  So what's a gal to do -- they're both experts.  We've put Zone: 3-9.  In Zone 3, I'd mulch well in winter.  In Zone 9, I'd go for the coolest spot possible and mulch.  (Soil determines coolness not air!)    Tiarellas are all long bloomers.

The River Series of Native Running Foamflower

In the past, the more interesting, colorful Tiarellas came from the non-running, Tiarella wherryi or its hybrids.  But move over and make room for 3 unique cultivars of Tiarella cordifolia, Heartleaf or Allegahny Running Foamflower.  The River Series was selected from 15,000+ F1 hybrid seedlings that resulted from crossing the very hardy Tiarella cordifolia ‘Erika Leigh’ and a super heavy blooming, running unnamed Tirella cordifolia seedling that has proved itself hardy for 8+ years by Sinclair Adams who introduced such winners as Tiarella 'Brandywine' and 'Oakleaf'.  The 5 standout cultivars selected from these 15,000 seedlings over 15 years are named for eastern Pennsylvania Rivers were introduced in January of 2009.

What you're saying about us... Per your email request, I am confirming that all of my plants arrived safely. Actually that's completely an understatement--they arrived PERFECTLY! Your shipping system is ingenious! Not one leaf fell off! They looked like they were plucked from the garden just minutes before arriving at my door! The Plumbago and Sedums are just beautiful! All bursting from the pots, looking as if they're just begging to be planted! And the sweet Sempervium was just a joy to see popping of the box--a huge "Hen" sitting loyally on a halo of adorable baby "Chicks". But I have to say, I almost lost my breath when I saw the Purple Heart! I just kept showing it to my husband and saying "Wow! Wow! I can't believe how amazing she is!" It seems to me the Purple Heart is one of the most underestimated plants-in beauty & otherwise. ... I waited years for mine to bloom ... and finally succeeded by moving her from inside to the garden. The one I received from you actually came with a bud already on it and opened fully by the next day!! I was practically dancing for joy! Thank you so much for the exquisite care you give to both your plants and customers. I am forever a loyal customer.

Glossy, bright green leaves are pierced by the stem.  Needs well drained soil but don't let it dry out.  They really need cool, humid, MOVING air.  *Lovely and choice as this is, if you live where there are hot+dry summers, you should pass this one by unless you're up for a challenge.   In hot, dry areas, try draping over a fish pond water fall or near a running stream, if you have one.  Reports of success under those circumstances.  They don't die in hot dry summers, the leaves just look ratty.

Trillium sessile     Toadshade Trillium      Zone: 4-8     

Trillium sessileLess well-know than the classic White Trillium, this is a graceful perennial and a wonderful addition to the spring woodland wildflower garden.  The three leaves (all parts of Trilliums come in 3's) are mottled and beautiful even when the bloom retires for summer.  Slowly rhizomatous if roots go undisturbed.  Blooms have a musky fragrance if you're flexible enough to bend over closely!  Blooms can be maroon to brownish purple to deep red.  Leaves will remain longer thru the summer if the garden is well-watered.  Unlike T. grandiflorum, the bloom is stalkless, like the yellow Trillium, which it resembles, and rest gracefully on the three leaves.

Soil: Rich, woodland      H: 6-12"  W: 6-12"    B/M:  Rusty red but variable/4-5

  Tritonia - not hardy for everyone but the following 2 species are hardy to zone 6.    In Fall, when the foliage starts to die back, cover with a good layer of mulch to let them die back and keep them warm through winter.  If you're in colder areas, when foliage starts to die back, remove soil, let the corms dry out completely, store in a cool area but above freezing and replant in spring.

Typhonium venosum (Sauromatum venosum    Voodoo-lily or Arum cornutum    Zone: 6A-10       

Typhonium venosum (Sauromatum venosum)     Voodoo-lily or Arum cornutumAn unearthly looking plant that looks like it was picked up on an Alien planet by the Star Trek Crew or at least acquired when they landed in a tropical garden.  It's a relative of Arisaemas but the bloom isn't remotely like a 'Jack'.  The odd violet and yellow inflorescence appears first.  Bloom really isn't the right word for it!  About a month later a large 2' wide ring of leaflets appears on a green and black mottled stem.  Later, an equally unearthly 2" orb appears (like a big purple and black blackberry) from the inflorescence containing seeds.  If you love it, you'll be happy as it multiplies readily by corms.  From the Himalayas and Southern India.  Best if protected from mid-day sun but in deep shade they are often floppy.

Soil: MOIST but well-drained        H: 30-36"  W:    B/M:  Violet & yellow/Spring
