Jeepers Creepers Tiarella

Tiarella 'Jeepers Creepers' PP #13,437

An improvement over other groundcover types, this variety slowly creeps across the ground, instead of running. Interestingly shaped leaves add dramatic color to the shaded garden. In the spring, lightly fragrant, creamy-white flowers appear on 12 inch tall spikes. Exceptional shade tolerance. Herbaceous perennial.
