Tiarella cordifolia, also called foamflower or heartleaf foamflower, is a low-growing semi-evergreen perennial wildflower, noted for its ivy-like or heart-shaped leaves and its airy but showy flowers in shades of light pink and white; flower stamens have a sudsy or foamy texture, hence the name foamflower. Closely related to, and occasionally mistaken for, Heuchera species, both plants are well-regarded for their ornamental, occasionally variegated foliage and their heavy shade tolerance.

Tiarella cordifolia grows best in part to full-shade in moist, organically rich soils and forms small clumps up to a foot tall and one to two feet wide, spreading via runners. Though foamflower should not be allowed to dry out, as its leaves will suffer, it should also not be left in areas with poorly draining, compacted soils. Flowers are attractive to bumblebees and other pollinators, and semi-evergreen foliage adds multi-season groundcover appeal.
