Dreamy Groundcover!

Sweet Fragrance Fills the Garden!

'Spring Symphony' combines the best Foamflower?attributes?into one great composition! Its lovely, fragrant blooms; variegated foliage; semi-evergreen habit?create a carefree groundcover that will transform your?shaded garden.

For many weeks in spring and early summer, 'Spring Symphony' is covered by a field of luminous shell-pink to white cloudpuffs.?Standing 10 inches high (above the foliage, which only reaches to about 6 inches), these bottlebrush blooms release a light, sweet fragrance that fills the garden, attracting the first butterflies of the season!

Once the blooms finally pass,?the foliage takes center stage. These very unusually-shaped leaves of olive green are strongly marked with black, very striking and eye-catching in the border. Large and many-lobed, they contrast beautifully with all neighboring plants, and keep their variegation throughout the summer heat. In mild and warm climates, they remain all winter.?

This compact, clumping plant reaches about 10 inches wide, which isn't nearly enough space to show off its good looks, so you will want to plant it in groups of at least three. Very resistant to pests and diseases, it shows its best black variegation in cooler weather. Autumn is a splendid season for 'Spring Symphony'!

Group this Tiarella?in front of Hostas, and with other native perennials. Somewhat resistant to deer, 'Spring Symphony' is trouble-free and very easy to grow, with blooms the first year in your garden. Zones 3-8.
