Dan Heims of Terra Nova Nurseries has been hybridizing Tiarella for years and has introduced many fantastic cultivars to date. But after he came up with 'Sugar and Spice', he saw no need to continue hybridizing in this genera.
'Sugar and Spice' has everything Dan has ever looked for in a Tiarella: glossy, deeply dissected leaves with a prominent central blotch, abundant pink and white lightly fragrant flowers, and beautiful winter foliage color.
This clump forming selection is a show stopper in shaded gardens and containers.
Tiarellas are riding on a tidal wave of popularity thanks to their shade tolerance, unusual leaf shape, dramatically marked foliage, repeat flowering, and light fragrance.
Removing the faded blooms regularly will prolong flowering and encourage more to come. Cut back and compost the spent flower stems in autumn and apply a dry mulch around the crown of the plant to protect against frost damage
