Queen of the Prairie - Filipendula rubra

Filipendula rubra, also known as Queen of the Prairie, is a perennial wildflower native to Michigan. It is a large plant with presence - height, showy leaves, and poofy flower clusters reminiscent of astilbe.

It reaches 5 feet tall and flowers from June to August with a pink blossom. Both the flowers and leaves are fragrant. This plant produces only pollen, which is useful to bees and other pollinators, but may leave butterflies dissapointed

Queen of the Prairie prefers full sun, medium to wet soil and will grow in clay, loam or sand, but prefers medium humusy soils. Spreads by rhizome and may crowd small gardens. Works well as a large garden backdrop or accent plant, and is also happy in rain gardens. Large clusters of plants are spectactular.
