Foam flower
Foam flower £6.99
Position: partial or deep shadeSoil: cool, moist, humus-rich soilRate of growth: fast-growing Flowering period: May to July Flower colour: creamy-whiteHardiness: fully hardyAttractive, deeply lobed leaves with a dark blotch in the centre make a great carpet of foliage throughout the summer. In late spring, slender stems rise up and hold spikes of tiny star-shaped, white flowers. This is a brilliant plant for covering the ground in a shady spot – plant it in large numbers for best effect.Garden care: Removing the faded blooms regularly will prolong flowering and encourage more to come. Cut back and compost the spent flower stems in autumn and apply a dry mulch around the crown of the plant to protect against frost damage
