In the springtime the new heart-shaped leaves are green, finely veined with plum violet. As the season progresses the leaves darken and the contrast is all the more striking as the spikes of white flowers come out.
Vigorous and long-lived Tiarella 'Appalachian Trail' can surprise many a gardener. Rhizomatous and therefore potentially invasive, it is a fabulous ground cover for shady spots in the garden.
You can also take advantage of its galloping growth to place it in a pot, or better, in a hanging basket, as shown on the following photo.
Grow in humus-rich, moist and well-drained soil.
Maintenance: add leaf compost then organic mulch in the spring.
