"Tiarella cordifolia 'Brandywine' is rated as one of the most vigorous of the genus. A strong grower with glossy, rugose leaves and excellent bronze fall and winter color. Bold, creamy white flowers persist for 6 to 8 weeks, a robust clump former with some short runners in spring and fall. Height: 8-12 inches (not in flower); 12-18 (in flower)" -- North Creek Nurseries
'Brandywine is very adaptable, and well-suited to shade gardens. It prefers moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter, and dappled light. It can suffer from excessively dry summer spells, and prolonged winter periods with wet feet. But, if one can avoid these extremes, foamflowers are very easy to grow and low-maintenance. It is not aggressive, and if left to its own devices, it will from an effective ground cover in due time. Dense colonies are formed by above-ground runners known as stolons. When you combine its easy-going nature and adaptability, you also get an excellent filler plant. Take advantage of the ornamental foliage to complement, or contrast, other shade-loving plants such as ferns and sedges, Phlox stolonifera, Polygonatum biflorum, Trillium grandiflorum, and more. Or, just plant them en masse in the front of a border.
