Brandywine Foamflower, Heartleaf Foamflower

General Description

Foamflower is a low carpeting perennial native to eastern North America. 'Brandywine' - an especially vigorous cultivar of foamflower - bears spikes of delicate, frothy, creamy white flowers atop 10-inch stems in spring. The lobed, slightly hairy, glossy green, maple-shaped leaves have pleated veins which are often stained with burgundy. The foliage turns bronze-red in winter. 'Brandywine' is at home in partial or full shade and moist, humus-rich soil, making it an ideal groundcover for the woodland garden.
