Glorious plumes of rosy pink, fuzzy flowers put on a stunning show through summer. The flowers open with a laid back romantic flair. The flowers can be picked and even dried. Filipendula ‘Nana’ is a dwarf form of Meadowsweet from the mountains of Japan.
As the name suggests, the leaves are palmate, or palm/hand shaped. They are big, to 20cm and deeply divided, with a lovely, soft look and feel. Great for garden texture.
Also known as Meadowsweet ‘Nana’, it grows well in boggy soils. They are perfect for those hard to plant out areas beside ponds and low lying areas of the garden. They will grow well in normal beds in sun, but need to be kept moist to avoid leaf burn.
A woodland plant, Filipendula prefers a humus rich soil and thrives with generous helpings of compost. Don’t expect too much in the first, year, it is in the second and subsequent years that this plant will really impress you. More flowers and more vigorous growth comes in time and soon you will wonder how you did without it.
