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.

Filipendula rubra ‘Venusta Alba’ full sun  partial shade

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.

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
