I don’t believe I have any but I’m sure others do...so please share!
Once you see them you will probably (hopefully) realize you have some.
I adore Filipendula.
I knew we could count on you Peren : )
Thank you for sharing your lovely specimens!
Those last blooms are so unique!

Help! What to do about our 1920s tub?
I don't have any, either. I planted filipendula flore plena last year, but it stayed an unimpressive basal leaves sort of plant so far. (Probably not helped by the helianthus behind it suddenly going from a few leaves pretending they were going to die to a clump of flowers the size of a Volkswagen. ) I also planted some fritillaria meleagris bulbs. But that was just this fall. Look forward to seeing what others have!
You are most welcome GardenHo! They really are, one of the many common names is Chequered lily.
Jenn I think you will like your F. vulgaris Flore Plena once it flowers, and I know you will like your bulbs!
I like the open flowers of all the Filipendula but I like the round buds even more and a combo of the two is really fun & interesting.
peren.all, you have some of everything and all so beautifully grown!
Jenn, you made me LOL because what you wrote is so true! ".....helianthus behind it suddenly going from a few leaves pretending they were going to die to a clump of flowers the size of a Volkswagen."
Ferns? So are we waiting or is the common name the most accepted? I know some people here have good collections. I only have one kind and realize I've never known their latin name. I found this....
What is the Latin name for Fern?
tracheophytaA fern is any one of a group of about 20,000 species of plants classified in the phylum or division Pteridophyta, also known as Filicophyta. The group is also referred to as polypodiophyta, or polypodiopsida when treated as a subdivision of tracheophyta (vascular plants).
Gardening life is getting too complicated, lol! I'll search for my Filipendula pic now. :-)
I have a pink filipendula that was given to me. I’m working on keeping it contained, but I don’t think I’m succeeding. I also have filipendula hexapetula but it doesn’t spread at all. I like the foliage, but the flower isn’t showy.
Thank you sandyslopes! "Gardening life is getting too complicated, lol!" Yes it is! The name changes alone are enough to boggle the mind. Ferns are a whole other level of complicated! You have to learn a new vocabulary just to name their parts. Too much for me lol!!! They are beautiful and I have some.
north53 that is very pretty, I could not find my pic of this lovely beast that is likely F. rubra - Queen of the Prairie that someone here dubbed "Thug of the Prairie".
I still really like it but it is difficult to corral!
GardenHo I seem to recall you have Forsythia ???
No F’s for me but waiting to see what you all have!
Peren no forsythias for me, but I do have Fothergillas..just no pics.
I found a pic of one of my Forsythias. This is what they look like growing wild without trimming. I wanted it to arch over the edge of the hillside. This year I'm planning to rejuvenate it by cutting some of the older trunks(?) and a little trim.
No filipendula pic, it wasn't that good. I'll take better pics of my perennials next year!
@perenn.all: about your Filipendula, in what conditions do you grow them, or
what do you think how much drought they can take?
I was talking to someone who will use them in a border with irrigation (on demand, not automated) and was impressed when I looked up some pictures.
my own garden is low maintenace (mild z7, Europe), I just add water if it stays dry for longer than 2 weeks, and then rather to the berries or few veggies
but we often get a 4-6 week period of hot sunny wheather with no rain,
with 95F or slightly more.
would Filipendula thrive under those conditions? I guess they were too thirsty, but as you grow them, I wanted to ask,
thanks, bye, Lin
Sigh - have tried (and failed) to grow filipendulas. Unsurprisingly, they hate my dry, sandy soil. However, I grew some frankoas a couple of years ago - didn't think they were all that but I find myself enthralled by the now large clumps of frilly, evergreen foliage - which may well turn out to be a slug hotel not unlike bergenias, but at the moment, they are keeping my eyes away from the grim vision of giant leafless tree paeonies.
linaria mine grow in full sun but my soil is moisture retentive. I am on a well so I do not water even on years that I should. Our weather is very much the same with intense summer heat and humidity, the temperature in the high 90's for many weeks. The basal foliage will sometimes crisp on the worst years but they have never failed to flower.
Since you will be supplementing their water you should be just fine growing them in full sun or light shade. I would not hesitate. They are not divas and I would actually classify them as quite carefree. Please keep us updated.
So sorry bellflower! Francoa(s) seems to be a lovely plants, I had to look them up.
you did well to find them, peren, given my dodgy spelling. I was having a 'Chile moment' when I ordered the seeds...although francoas have always been sort of popular for certain old fashioned woodsy gardens, here in the UK. Commonly called Bridal Wreath (although I have heard that applied to spireas too). Does anyone here grow boykinia - another saxifrage member? I did sow seeds once but didn't have much success although I would definitely have another go at this US native.
