The Fingerpaint Foam Flower has very unique variegated foliage that adds an unexpected pop of color and a lacy texture to a shady landscape. The glossy bright green lobed leaves have scalloped edges that feature dark purplish-burgundy along the center midrib and veins. Tiarella 'Fingerpaint' is a showy perennial normally grown for its foliage. In early May, a short flower spike emerges and displays mini bell-shaped blooms in an ivory hue that lasts into the summer.

Use this plant as a groundcover, particularly in an area that receives limited light. Foam Flower also does very well in borders, beds, or containers. This low-maintenance plant is native to North America and deer-resistant, so it is a great choice to include in areas prone to animal damage. The delicate flowers will draw butterflies into your landscape for added convenience. This mounded plant grows as a perennial in USDA zones 4 through 9.

Fingerpaint Foamflower Care

Plant Fingerpaint Foam Flower in part sun to full shade. Use rich, moist soil that is neutral to acidic and has good drainage. Foam Flower has average water needs and will need a drink when the top few inches of the soil dry out. This plant prefers evenly moist conditions, so saturate the soil to drench the root ball when applying water.

Fertilizing is unnecessary when grown in rich soil, but apply balanced, slow-release plant food in the spring to support new growth. This clump-forming plant can be divided in the fall. Foam Flower is semi-evergreen in areas with mild winters.

Fingerpaint Foamflower Spacing

The mounded Fingerpaint Foam Flower will spread 10 to 12 inches wide and reach 10 to 12 inches tall. Plants can be spaced 10 inches apart to create a dense mass planting; although, give the plants more room, and they will gradually fill in the empty space with runners and new plants. A 12-inch container is enough space for one to two plants.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
