Tiarella 'Pink Brushes' (PP#13,329) is an exceptionally vigorous and long-blooming foamflower.

Growth Habit - A non-running clump former making a loose mound of foliage to about 10" high X 14" wide. The superabundant flower stalks reach 18" tall.
The plants grow rapidly and make a thick, dense clump the first year.

Foliage -
The leaves are 3.5 to 4" across, deeply lobed, and have seasonally variable central maroon markings.
In early spring the new growth is flushed with purple.

Flowers -
The individual flowers are light pink and retain their petals longer than is usual for Tiarella; the flower spikes are dense and full. Bloom time is late April through May for us.
