Product Details

Product Details

Filipendula rubra 'Venusta' is a dramatic 6’ tall beauty with bright, full clusters of pink flowers. Its stems seem impervious to wind and weather, making the Queen of the Prairie (as it’s commonly known) an excellent choice for adding height to the border. Plants are easy-keepers and thrive in average to damp soil.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Beautiful and easy to care for

Planted 3 Venusta in a corner of my house that receives morning sun and tends to hold moisture after rain. They have thrived and the fluffy pink flowers are gorgeous. It adds a fairytale quality to the garden when in bloom.

Queen of the Prairie

I purchased 6 of these after seeing them in a book. Kentucky is known to get periods of extended rain, and I needed something that could withstand periodic bogginess if necessary. 5 out of 6 of my plants survived and thrived. She tolerates both bogginess and periodic drought with grace. The airy pink flowers on her tall stems look like beautiful cotton candy. As she's growing back in this spring, I can see that she's made herself at home by spreading out in a one foot radius from her original planting. I just ordered 3 more and I can't wait to get them in the ground.

At their best in full sun or partial shade and average to damp soil with a pH close to neutral. Even moisture during the growing season is essential. In partial shade plants may require staking.
