Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria) is a perennial herb, growing in damp meadows, ditches and bogs, at the edges of ponds, on river banks and in damp open woodland. Common throughout Europe, it is also be found in the eastern US and Canada as far west as Ohio. The creeping rootstock sends up a reddish, angular stem, up to 120cm tall. The small, creamy-white five-petaled flowers with over twenty protruding stamens grow in panicled cymes from June to August.
Meadowsweet is a good candidate to grow in moist meadows or near bodies of water, where the herb blooms from June through August. And while it can grow in a variety of situations, it does require some attention. It reacts well to heavy compost at least once each season. And if leaves become tattered in the summer, severely prune them and keep soil moist until new leaves emerge. The herb is collected in July, when it is in flower and can be dried for later use.

Germination; Sow indoors Mar-May. Surface sow onto moist, well-drained seed compost. Just cover seed with a sprinkling of soil. Place in a propagator. Ideal temp. 20-25°C. Do not exclude light. Keep moist at all times. Germination takes 3-4 weeks approx. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle to 8cm pots and grow on in cooler conditions. Acclimatise and plant out after danger of frost has passed.
Growing; Prefers a fertile, humus-rich, moist soil in full or partial sun. Will not tolerate waterlogged soils. Ideal for wet woodlands, damp meadows, ditches or pond margins.
Cultivation; Will self-seed, deadhead if you do not want volunteer seedlings next season. Cut the plant back after flowering ceases. Propagate by seed or by division in spring. In a sunny location the plant will spread via seed. If you wish to sow this fresh seed do so immediately in autumn. In a shadier location the plant will spread via its rhizatomous root.
