Plant Details

A beautiful, uncommon double form of the purple Meadowsweet. Tall plumes of double pinky-purple flowers in July and August.

Happy in most soils in semi-shade or full sun. 

Suitable for cut flowers.

Height and spread: 90 x 45 cm

The name Filipendula comes from the Latin ‘filum', meaning thread and ‘pendulus’, meaning drooping. Purpurea means purple, but is likely to refer to the stems and foliage, rather than the flower colour.

Common name:  Double Purple Meadowsweet




All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
