    A familiar sight on the banks of streams or wet ditches, our native meadowsweet is a vigorous, easy-to-grow plant that's ideal for boggy areas of the garden or beside water. Handsome, deeply veined leaflets are held on arching stems, topped with fluffy sprays, up to 25cm across, of creamy-white flowers in summer. The plant forms clumps of upright growth, but will self seed freely in the the right spot.

  • Garden care: Do not let plants dry out as they may become susceptible to powdery mildew. To control their tendency to seed everywhere, remove the faded flowers before they set seed.



  • Sow: March-October

  • Flowering: July - August
