Plant Details

A British native herb usually found in dry flower meadows and verges. Finely cut, ferny, dark green foliage and coral-pink flower buds which open to fluffy cream flower heads on slender stems in June. 

Excellent for wildflower schemes and equally suitable for a border. Loved by bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

Height and spread: 60 x 45 cm

The name Filipendula comes from the Latin ‘filum', meaning thread and ‘pendulus’, meaning drooping. 

Common name:  Dropwort

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.
