Hardy, clump forming perennial with large lobed, incised lightish green leaves. Plumes of white flowers with red stamens in summer appear pink from a distance, attracting bees and butterflies. Much more compact than most meadowsweets, growing to about 60-70cm. Enjoys moist soils in full sun, so add pleny of organic matter when planting and perhaps mulch each spring as well.
