TIARELLA Running Tiger -

 

Description:

  • Foliage: Tiarella is known for its attractive, deeply lobed, palmate leaves. 
  • Flowers: Delicate, foam-like spikes of small, white to light-pink flowers rise above the foliage in spring. The bloom period is usually in late spring to early summer.
  • Habit: Low-growing, clump-forming perennial.

General Care:

1. Sunlight:

  • Prefers partial to full shade. Some morning sunlight is generally tolerated, but protection from intense afternoon sun is beneficial.

2. Soil:

  • Well-draining, humus-rich soil. Tiarella thrives in slightly acidic to neutral soil.

3. Watering:

  • Keep the soil consistently moist. Regular watering is important, especially during dry periods. Mulching helps retain soil moisture.

4. Mulching:

  • Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base to conserve soil moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

5. Pruning:

  • Deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming. Cut back the foliage in late autumn or early spring to promote fresh growth.

6. Fertilization:

  • Fertilize in spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer. Avoid excessive nitrogen to prevent overly lush growth.

7. Winter Care:

  • Tiarella is generally hardy, but a layer of mulch around the base can provide winter protection, especially in colder temperatures.

8. Division:

  • Divide clumps every 2-3 years in early spring to maintain plant health and vigor.

9. Pest and Disease Management:

  • Monitor for slugs and snails, which can sometimes be attracted to the foliage. Good air circulation helps prevent foliar diseases.
