    ‘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.

    Spotted Cranesbill has deeply incised green leaves in a mounding habit.  The flowers are produced in quantity from late April into June, in shades varying from pale pink to bright lavender-purple.  As a native species of Geranium, it naturalizes well from seed in moist locations in both sun and shade.  It is particularly effective as a loose woodland groundcover, especially when partnered with early spring bulbs, Ferns and Carex.  This is one of Landscape Architect Larry Weaner's staples for his extensive work with natural meadows and woodlands.
