Tiarella 'Pink Pearls' (PP#13,445) is a new breed of foamflower. This is a hybrid between one of the spring blooming eastern US T. cordifolia types and the western T. unifoliata, which blooms in the summer. The result is a form that begins to bloom in the spring and continues on well into the summer.

Growth Habit - A large clump of loose foliage about 10" high X 24" across, with abundant branching flower stems held at an angle and reaching about 18".

Foliage - The leaves are glossy green, about 4 to 4.5" across, and shaped like those of red maple.

Flowers - The flowers are white from pink buds that resemble tiny pearls and are borne on long branching stems that extend out from the clump.
