Miterwort, Bishop's Cap
One of Vermont's prettiest spring wildflowers, closely related to foamflower (Tiarella.) 8-14" tall plants have a clump of maple-like semi-evergreen leaves at the base and several slender flower stems. Each stem carries a matched pair of leaves and a number of stalkless, beautiful little cream-colored flowers with extravagantly fringed petals that make the flowers look like snowflakes. Our plants are nursery-propagated from responsibly wild-collected seed originating in Huntington, VT. Miterwort naturally grows in hardwood forests in moist, rich loam. Part shade. Zones 3-7.
