Filipendula ulmaria is a lovely plant of damp meadows - as the name suggests - and widespread across most of Europe. It was said to be a great favourite of Queen Elizabeth's, at which stage it was used as a "strewing herb" to sweeten the smell of floor rushes. Throughout high summer a range of pollinators love its succession of frothy white flowers, which also have various herbal qualities. Meadowsweet flowers are also said to taste like marzipan (which I guess they do, a little!). Filipendula ulmaria grows to around 1.25m. We offer meadowsweet as either bare root or in generous 110cc size plugs, depending on availability.
