Flowers: June-July.  Plant in sun or light shade.  HxS  1.2mx90cm

This is a superb waterside plant and is much under-rated by gardeners.  It is a very elegant form of the scented Japanese meadowsweet, with palmate foliage and white flowers with red anthers, making them appear a soft pink in colour.  Excellent when planted in sun or light shade in a moist soil which does not dry out in summer.  Meadowsweets have a good upright habit, with the flowers held clear of the foliage and do not need staking.  A superb addition for a moist border or bog garden and an excellent backdrop to ponds.  It cuts well too.

Care & Maintenance.

Cut back hard in spring.  Divide in spring to propagate.
