Agree as I have tried to grow Meadowsweet. Also called dropwort (for wet woodsy gardens) I loved the look but don't think that my soil was improved
enough when I tried or maybe didn't realize it liked a wet location at the time. There are different types (forget name of red variety) Can be used to naturalize an area. I think it would love the conditions this summer!! I probably have pics somewhere but geez photo files go back so many years! LOL More info probably can be found under wildflowers.

Muddy, I put it in a low area of my shade garden and am hoping it gets enough light. Thought the flower head looked a little sparse but then again this is its first year so will hope it acclimates.
