Item #:
Pot Size: quart


Plant Description

Sugar and Spice is one of the best foamflower introductions from Terra Nova Nurseries. Plants form 1' wide clumps of shiny, deeply dissected leaves with a center splotch. In mid-late spring, they are covered with 1' tall spikes of very pale pink budded, white flowering brushes. Sugar and Spice forms slowly expanding clumps and would be suitable along a path or in the front of a shady garden with good soil. Its flowers are a little whiter and the purple leaf coloration is a little more intense than Pink Skyrocket. Great companions include celandine poppy, ferns, and blue phlox.
