Filipendula purpurea 'Elegans'

26th July 2014

The Japanese Meadowsweet grows to about 1m tall in habitat and the flowers vary from magenta-red through pink to white. The cultivar 'Elegans' is supposed to be a mid-pink dwarf but you know how it goes, over the years names wander around among the assorted vegetation like a satirist at a reality star's cocktail party.
This one was called 'Elegans' when I got it, and I only have one form so it hardly matters.

I may have been unkind, it has been reliably dwarf.
