Looking to add some delicate pink color to your garden? Consider Filipendula palmata, also known as Meadow Sweet or Siberian Meadowsweet. These perennial herbaceous flowering plants grow to be 0.6-1.5 meters tall, with pinnate leaves and large inflorescences of small pink flowers. This species is native to Siberia and is well adapted to moist, alkaline soils in partial shade. While similar to Astilbe or Spirea, the tiny flowers in upright panicles of Filipendula palmata add to the beauty of any garden. This plant is also a food source for some species of Lepidoptera, including the Emperor Moth and Grey Pug. If you're looking to add some interest to your garden or attract some fluttering friends, consider adding Filipendula palmata to your collection.
