FAMILY INDEX

FAMILY CODE: SAXIFR
FAMILY SCIENTIFIC: Saxifragaceae
FAMILY AUTHORITY: A.L. de Jussieu 1789
FAMILY COMMON: Saxifrage Family
FAMILY SUMMARY: If narrowly circumscribed (as here), a family of about 35 genera and 500-650 species, herbs (mianly perennial), nearly cosmopolitan, but especially diverse in warm temperate and cold temperate regions of North America and Eurasia. The circumscription of a much narrower Saxifragacaeae is clearly warranted, based on a wide variety of data, and strongly corroborated by molecular data (Morgan & Soltis 1993 and many later references).

HORTICULTURAL
Plant Sale Text: Each spring the airy, white, spear-like flowers of Tiarella cordifolia var. collina brighten the shady garden. Handsome green and purple leaves turn burgundy red in the fall. In the wild, foamflower is seen in rich wooded areas of the mountains and Piedmont, thriving in moist well-drained soil, high in organic matter. Low growing, foamflower makes a fine groundcover for shaded areas. It can also be grown in combination with other woodland plants, in the rock garden, or in containers. Foamflower does not tolerate flooding.
