Description
  • Height and Spread: Typically reaches about 10 to 12 inches in height with a spread of 12 to 15 inches, forming a compact, mounded clump.
  • Leaves: Features green, deeply lobed leaves with distinct veining, often marked with darker centers. The foliage provides significant visual interest, even when the plant is not in bloom.
  • Flowers: Boasts dense spikes of starry, pink-tinged white flowers that bloom profusely in spring, creating a soft, foamy appearance above the foliage. The blooms are attractive to pollinators and add a delicate texture to shade gardens.
  • Growth Habit: ‘Spring Symphony’ has a mounding habit and can spread through runners, making it an excellent ground cover option in shaded areas.
Habitat and Cultivation
  • Adaptability: While Tiarella is native to North America, ‘Spring Symphony’ is specifically bred for ornamental appeal and garden performance. It is hardy in USDA zones 4 through 9, making it suitable for a wide range of temperate gardens.
  • Soil and Sunlight: Prefers moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. It thrives in partial to full shade, making it an ideal choice for woodland gardens, under trees, or in other shaded garden areas.
  • Watering: Regular watering is recommended to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, especially during dry spells.
Care and Maintenance
  • Pruning: Minimal pruning is required. Deadheading the spent flower spikes can tidy the plant and may encourage additional blooming. Removing old foliage in early spring can promote fresh growth.
Landscaping Use
  • Tiarella ‘Spring Symphony’ is perfect for use in shade gardens, woodland settings, and as an understory plant in shaded borders. Its compact size and attractive foliage make it a great choice for front-of-border placements or ground cover.
  • It pairs beautifully with ferns, hostas, and other shade-loving perennials, offering a contrast in texture and bloom type. It can also be used effectively in container gardens, where its flowers can be appreciated at close range.
