Meadowsweet Plug 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. Flourishing in damp soils, this upright perennial species is commonly found in damp meadows or alongside streams and rivers.
Ideal for wildlife gardens, wildflower meadows and informal cottage gardens meadowsweet has a long flowering season from early summer to September.
It is attractive to many pollinating insects and is a food source for the larvae of several moth species including emperor moths and grey pugs.
Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.
We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
