Clouds of Pink
Lavish, cotton-candy pink flowers float above foliage on branching stems like fluffy clouds. Foliage, as pretty as the fragrant flowers, has maple-like serrated leaves flaunting dramatic dark veining. The foliage of Filipendula Red Umbrellas is darkest green in spring and will lighten slightly as the plant flowers. The leaves have a quilted, textured look due to the prominent veining. Meadowsweet is a carefree perennial. Birds, bees and butterflies will appreciate it for its flowers and seeds. Its alluring attributes continue as it is deer resistant and the long flower stems are great for cut flower bouquets.

Filipendula General Information

Filipendula are consistent performers, interesting in both leaf and flower. Begins blooming in June and flowers over a long period. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Filipendula Plant Care

Cut back dead tops in fall or spring. Divide in spring or fall as often as needed. Prefers a moist soil, but will tolerate quite a bit of dryness. Best to provide moisture in extended dry spells.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
