Filipendula ulmaria ‘Aurea’
at Digging Dog

Filipendula

Meadow Sweet

These hardy American perennials will satisfy your sweet tooth without making you pay a heavy price. In almost any garden soil, their foliage is full and dependable, enlivened by spraylike panicles of small flowers. Most prefer a moist well-drained setting and will happily linger at the edge of a pond.

Esteemed for its bright golden foliage, this moisture-lover delights with fragrant Astilbe-like clusters of minute creamy white flowers. Upright clump-forming stems are garbed in prominently veined, deeply dissected leaves, which transmute a vivid chartreuse glow as summer approaches.

Companions like Ophiopogon ‘Nigrescens’ and Geranium ‘Espresso’ make ‘Aurea’s lambent accents appear even more exceptional; protection from hot afternoon sun and fertile, moderately wet soil ensure its success.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 2'–3' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Viola ‘Rebecca’ for it's sweet, delectable scent and tidy compact clumps of dapper evergreen foliage. All are equally captivating, though no two are alike, each ebullient white flower showcases a creamy lemon flushed center and irregularly patterned, deep violet edges. This sweet smelling Viola should be ensconced near a well-traveled path or seating area, where its plentiful color flecked flowers can be easily relished ‘till the first hard frost.
