Meadowsweet


Filipendula rubra 'Venusta'

Meadowsweet

One of this flower's common names says it all: queen of the prairie. This majestic plant is crowned with large, cotton-candylike heads of fluffy flowers in late summer.

The plant's divided leaves provide brilliant textural contrast in the garden. It loves moisture, so it's ideal for growing beside sunny ponds or streams, although it also thrives in moist, rich garden soil. It is seldom nibbled on by deer or rabbits.
