Caring for your Foamflower
This perennial does well in almost every state and needs partial shade and sun to thrive at its best. The Foam flower does well along river banks and creeks because of the acidic soil and moist soil but can also do well in your home landscape, providing that the ground is kept moist and wet. The Foamflower is native to the US and seems to do the best in cool climates.
The flowers are approximately 6-12 inches tall, and once they mature, the plants will send out runners who will create and spring up new plants in no time. The flowers appear in a feathery texture and form a cluster like no other.
The Foam flower does the best in colonies and makes for an excellent groundcover in shady areas. Many will find this plant as you walk through the woods and enjoy cutting off the plant blooms and placing them in a vase or bowl on your dinner table as they are fragrant and a lovely site to look at. Foam flowers make a great addition to any home décor or landscape.
