Meadowsweet 9cm Pot Plants Filipendula ulmaria
Common names include mead wort and bittersweet.
The frothy clusters of small white or creamy yellow flowers of meadowsweet have a sweet pleasant scent when they first open. This upright perennial species flourishes in damp soils and is commonly found in damp meadows or alongside streams and rivers.
Meadowsweet has a long flowering season from early summer to September and is an ideal addition to wildlife gardens, wildflower meadows and informal cottage gardens.
It is a source of nectar and pollen for many pollinating insects and is a food source for the larvae of several moth species including grey pugs and emperor moths.
Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our 9cm pot plants are a quick and effective way to boost species in a wildflower meadow.
We recommend planting around 3 plants per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
