Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

For best results grow Tiarella ‘Pink Skyrocket’ in moist but well-drained soil in part to full shade. This is a fabulous low maintenance plant – making excellent weed-suppressing ground cover as it spreads gently by stolons and naturally producing offsets. If growing in pots make sure to water well in summer months as like ferns and other woodland plants it will struggle with periods of drought.

Expert Tip

When grown in dappled sun or part shade, leaves turn coppery bronze in colder temperatures. In milder areas this foliage will then hold through the winter.
