Filipendula rubra 'Venusta'

Queen-of-the-Prairie

The bright pink, Astilbe-like flowers of Queen of the Prairie bloom on tall stems in June and July. Filipendula ‘Venusta’ loves wet spots and will colonize a large area slowly. Commonly found in wet meadows throughout North America, its large, attractive foliage makes a textural impact and following its bloom period, attractive brown seedheads are produced and remain showy throughout the end of summer and into fall. A prolific self-seeder, seedheads should be removed if spread is unwanted.  It is more compact than the species and was bred in the 1950s in Great Britain.  This particular selection is so revered that it’s received the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society for its outstanding garden performance.
