Filipendula ulmaria (Meadowsweet) MG


( / )

So with meadowsweet it seems less about sun and shade and more about wet feet, so give them a little extra water as we move into the dry season. grows to 4 ft, and needs 2 ft spacing. I love this plant for when things go awry in the stomach. Also this was the plant that aspirin was originally derived from. Harvest aerial parts in bloom.
