Filipendula rubra ‘Venusta Alba’
at Digging Dog

Queen of the Prairie

Filipendula

Meadow Sweet

These hardy American perennials will satisfy your sweet tooth without making you pay a heavy price. In almost any garden soil, their foliage is full and dependable, enlivened by spraylike panicles of small flowers. Most prefer a moist well-drained setting and will happily linger at the edge of a pond.

This magnificent American native struts a bushy upright pedestal of notched dark green compound foliage with bold 4 to 8 in. lobed terminal leaflets plus paired incised laterals. Swarthy stems bolster the generous perfumed panicles described by diminutive loosely arranged pure white flowers. A leafy back-of-the border mainstay, ‘Venusta Alba’s wispy floral pouffes look especially spectacular when planted in drifts and viewed from afar.

Blooms July–August

Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
