Foamflower → Tiarella – common names are often local in nature and ambiguous. One plant can have several names, and several plants can have one name. Names can be spelt or presented differently in different cultures. In this case "foam flower" is usually presented as two words in British English. By contrast, the Latin name is unambiguous, is accepted by the scientific community, and places the plant within a recognised hierarchy of family -> genus -> species.

Support per nomination and WP:UCN. Tiarella appears to be a more commonly used name than foamflower (or false miterwort). Google books results: 22k for foamflower/"foam flower", 44k for Tiarella. Google scholar results: 1234 for foamflower/"foamflower" 2710 for tiarella -globiceps -pennaria. General Google results have a similar pattern (and a substantial number of book and general Google hits for "foam flower" are for artificial flowers made out of foam)Plantdrew (talk) 18:01, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
Support – Tiarella is used as a common name (perhaps because people want to be clear that they aren't talking about the artificial objects mentioned by User:Plantdrew). Sminthopsis84 (talk) 15:56, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
