Description from Johnson’s Nursery: Meadowsweet is a Wisconsin Native shrub that grows to be 2-4′ tall, thrives in full sun and grows well in wet areas like bogs or along edges of streams. Meadowsweet doesn’t have the typical neat shrub-like structure as it grows in colonies and could be commonly mistaken for a wildflower in a wet prairie-like setting, though it is classified as a woody shrub with a woody root structure. The flowers are panicles with individual small white flowers distributed among them and can be seen during midsummer.
