Tiarella (Foamflower, Foam Flower)

 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Tiarella (Foamflower, Foam Flower)
  • Latin Name: Tiarella cordifolia; T. polyphylla
  • Family Name: Saxifragaceae
Although non-toxic and with no known hazards , the Tiarella is high in tannins, which have a very bitter taste and are often unpalatable for tortoises, so only feed as part of a varied diet. 

The flowers are mainly white, but there are varieties with pink flowers.
