Japanese meadowsweet is one of our favorite mid-spring flowering plants for moist soil. The upright 3' tall stalks are adorned with 5-7 lobed green leaves and topped, starting in mid-May, with what resembles a punk hairdo of bright pink. Although Filipendula purpurea can take periods of drought, a sunny, moist site is preferred.
