Look For It Now: Foam Flower

Foam flower (tiarella cordifolia) is blossoming in Vermont. Look for this woodland plant's delicate white flowers on a tall, leafless stalk. Foam flowers' leaves, which look a bit like maple leaves, grow in clumps on the ground. This flower is a member of the saxifrage family, and is sometimes referred to as "false miterwort" due to its similar appearance to miterwort. Foam flowers, which can reach 12 inches in height, bloom May into June -- so there's still time to head outdoors to look for it now! (Photos by Meghan Oliver)
