Foamflower is one of the showiest spring wildflowers, native to the woodlands and forests of the eastern United States. In the shade garden, the starry white flower spikes are often accented with a tinge of pink. The handsome lobed foliage stays attractive all summer and turns hues of red and bronze in the fall. The dense foliage hugs the ground and flower spikes rarely exceed one foot. Foamflower is not an aggressive grower, and it will form a nice groundcover in time.
