Queen Of The Prairie
Queen Of The Prairie (Filipendula Rubra)- click on picture for closeup view.
A perennial plant that grows 3-6'tall, and blooms mid summer for about 3 weeks. The panicle of pink buds ranges from 5-8"across, and resembles cotton candy. A beautiful flower that puts on a spectacular display!
