Filipendula (Meadowsweet) palmata ‘Nana’

Nana’ is the “Dwarf Pink Queen of the Meadow”. It features attractive, finely cut foliage much like other meadowsweet. This Filipendula is great, with masses of pink blooms on a dwarf, bushy plant that has wide palmately divided leaves. It is a smaller version and a good garden plant for the front of the border that quickly forms a large clump. It is great for filling in an area for late color.

General Information +

Botanical: Filipendula palmata 'Nana'

Common: Siberian Meadowsweet

Family: Rosaceae

General Characteristics: This Siberian Meadowsweet has small flowers in large umbels of medium pink, over leafy clumps of lobed leaves. This is a great garden plant. Very hardy perennial to Zone 3. Likes alkaline soil and prefers moist conditions.

Use: Border fronts, cottage gardens, wild/naturalized areas, wet meadows or moist areas along streams or ponds. Dwarf size faciliates massing this plant as a ground cover.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems. Many of the filipendulas are susceptible to powdery mildew.

Planting Instructions: Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers consistently moist, fertile, humusy soils. Soils must not be allowed to dry out. Appreciates some part afternoon light shade in hot summer climates. Propagate by dividing clumps in fall. Although many filipendulas freely self-seed, it is not known at this time as to whether this new hybrid cultivar will come true from seed. With sufficient moisture, foliage may remain attractive throughout the growing season. If foliage depreciates in late summer, cut back after bloom.
