Once widely spread across North America, Tiarella became a staple plant in home gardening, prized for its perennial and low-maintenance properties. 

First described in 1738 by Carl Linnaeus, it would be Victorian Britain that ushered in its popularity that would last into the late 21st Century. 

Tiarella enjoyed a predominantly woodland habitat. As dryer conditions spread northwards in America, wildfires would force Tiarella's migration into more mountainous regions such as the Rocky Mountains. 

Due to Earth system changes brought on by the consequences of climate change, what is now known as the Great North American Drought, a period of minimal rainfall for 37 years, would render its natural habitat obsolete.
