The Foam flower is a great little flower to have as an addition to your landscape. The foam flower has a small white bloom in the center with long, green slender leaves around it which sits low in the ground as a lush, green clump.
The Foam flower blooms well in early spring to summer in the months of April, May, June and July. The foam flower can grow to heights of 1-3 feet and can expand outwards just as much. The foam flower is considered a perennial in the herb family.
This perennial does well in almost every state and needs partial shade and sun in order 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 Foam flower is native to the US and seems to do the best in cool climates.
The flowers are approximately 6-12 inches tall and once mature the plants will send out runners which 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 a great groundcover in shady areas. Many will find this plant as you are walking through the woods and will 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.
