Filipendula rubra Red Umbrella - Queen of the Prairie (Photo Rijnbeek and Son)

Filipendula x 'Red Umbrella' PP22129

Meadowsweet

‘Red Umbrella’ Meadowsweet is an interspecific cross from Yohei Hosogai of Japan. Filipendula x ‘Red Umbrella’ is more compact than our native Filipendula rubra, and the foliage is showy with large green maple-shaped leaves heavily veined with purple. This is crowned with large airy pink umbels in mid summer. Filipendulas thrive in moist sunny locations (hence the other common name, ‘Queen-of-the-Prairie’), and are a vigorous long-lived addition to meadows, stream sides and sunny rain gardens.
