(Kakome Meadowsweet, Meadowsweet)

An exceptional hybrid meadowsweet for the garden, ‘Kahome’ is a relatively compact selection with pretty pink summer flowers and lustrous, deeply lobed leaves. It is believed to be a cross between the Japanese species, Filipendula multijuga and possibly F. purpurea, though this is not confirmed.

Deeply lobed, almost maple-like leaves grace this substantial garden from spring to fall. The leaves are coarsely toothed, medium to light green and supported by reddish stems. For several...

(Alpine Dropwort, Dwarf Meadowsweet)

Bright, lime green foliage that looks like those of a maple and fluffy rosy flower clusters in early summer make the dwarf meadosweet a delicious plant for moist garden sites. A clump-forming herbaceous perennial, it is native to the mountains of central and southern Japan. Plants grow from swollen, tuberous rhizomes (underground stems) and can vary in their mature height, from shin-high to nearly waist-high depending on their nativity to a colder alpine elevation.

The hand-like leaves are light...

(Dwarf Fothergilla, Dwarf Witchalder)

Dwarf fothergilla boasts honey-scented flowers in the spring and spectacular orange to scarlet fall foliage that is second to none.

In early spring, before leaves emerge, cream-colored “brushes” open on branch tips, releasing a sweet odor. In the autumn, superb shades of yellow, orange and scarlet illuminate the shrub’s leaves.

Its lovely blue-green foliage is very dense and turns shades of red, yellow and orange in fall. Its sweetly scented spring flowers cover the uniform shrub in spring before the leaves emerge.
